“Neat, but underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went on a stormy day, so the blowhole was in full action. It's neat to see, but not as impressive as I thought it would be.

“we loved the spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

it was a highlight of a day trip around the island the spot is amazing with the black sand and the surrounding view we met few of the locals surfing there and they have a lot of fun. we enjoyed the spot very much especially our teenagers.

“Blowholes are awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Trou du Souffleur is a blowhole near a lovely black sand beach. It's different from other blowholes that I've seen, as instead of shooting a wide geyser of water it was shooting a narrow and focused jet of mist. It was a nice place to stop on one of our drives around the island of Tahiti-Nui.

“Blowholes and beautiful coastline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

There are four blowholes - three on the cliff face at the end of the viewing area and one above the old coast road. Its a beautiful scenic spot, close to the other main nature attraction - the three waterfalls and both are completely free. We hired a car for two days and stopped here twice - 4 year old was mesmerised for over 20 minutes just watching the sea surge onto the rocks and then the blowholes blow. We were there on a public holiday and it was nice to get out of the resorts and see the locals out surfing and picnicing and feel like seeing some of the real Tahiti.
