It only about a 10-15 min stop but it was worth it to me and my family. It was beautiful to see the rocks and the blow holes. To watch the water shoot up was beautiful. I recommend having walking shoes on if you want to get closer, we had water shoes on.

This is something I have never seen, and I grew up near the coast. Every time a big wave comes in, the blowholes spit a jet of water up into the air. If you're close enough, you'll fee the mist, and it feels great. There are a lot of cool rocks around.

Our tour group made a short stop here to watch the tides forced water through underground caverns and upwards through openings (blow holes) on the shoreline creating a geyser effect. I only noticed one blow hole on the shoreline. You have to walk down a set of stairs from the roadside to get close to the shoreline. The shoreline is quite rocky with not much sand. There is no shade in the area and I would recommend wearing a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. There is no admission charge for this attraction.

This is an easy thing to see, just pulling over off Sea View Rd. on the SE part of Grand Cayman Island. While there's a popular spot where the other visitors congregate at the base of the stairs from the road down to the beach, I found the most "interesting" blow hole about 50 feet to the left if you're facing the water (to the east). It's not as tall, but it makes this sound that's worth checking out.

To the right of the base of the stairs is an area where guests will stack rocks into cairns. I could take or leave this practice, but I did get some pretty photos of the rocks in the foreground and the blow holes in the background.

You can walk along the coral to see everything up close, but make sure you have on shoes.

This is a very quick visit, my friend and I spent about 10 minutes there.

If you are driving over in this area it’s worth stopping by. Make sure and see if there are big waves crashing against the shoreline because that’s when the blow holes are impressive! The blow hole is basically straight out from the steps. When we stopped by, we had to wait a few minutes until some big waves finally rolled in and then it was impressive! Otherwise you may not see much if it’s fairly calm. There are a lot of interesting little hermit crabs crawling around the tidal pools closer to the viewing area for the blow holes.

Worth a short stop to get out and view the blow holes. Grandchildren 5 and 8 really enjoyed the spray by standing right next to them. Looked like smoke or steam coming out of the small ones. (dragons breath) if you have a good imagination!

We stopped on our way to starfish point via car. It was a windier day, and the waves were crashing against the rocks. We saw several blow holes, which was cool. Only stayed for about 5 minutes. Probably not worth a tour if you have the means to get there yourself.

The sea is very beautiful. I really like that view. But even though we waited for a long time, we could not see the water coming up from the blow hole. Nature changes suddenly... Whatever those who saw it said it was great. I love to visit again😎🌻( to see water coming up 😉from the blow hole)

It's worth a quick stop by the side of the road to see this, but I wouldn't recommend making a special trip. I saw a huge spray from a boat one afternoon so they can shoot water up pretty high. The day I stopped for pictures the sea was calm and the biggest sets of waves sprayed water 3-4 feet.

Located on east side. There is an area to park and walk down. Nice spot for a picture, the blowholes go off every 2 minutes or so. Can spend about 5-20 minutes here, nothing else to do around there. If your exploring and near the area you can stop, otherwise not worth going out of your way
