Pretty place to stop along the way

We've seen some great blow holes in NZ and Australia but this wasn't as big. Still, an interesting place to stop while touring Tahiti,and it's practically on the road...

Absolutely a curious spot that I think everyone should check it out and experience the funny and strong wind coming out from a tiny hole.

Part of my round Tahiti tour. It is a blowhole located on the northern part of the island. Scenery is lovely.

For something that is just a little drive-by stop, our family got a big kick out of the blow hole. Alma sat in front of the tube where the noise comes out and laughed and laughed! The spout out the other side was just as fun to watch--very random as the ocean is.

In August afternoon, th Souffleur was not blowing, but it is a very nice spot to stop at during a drivee around the island. The sound coming from the rocks was awesome

This is a lovely place to stop, breathe, and have a light lunch while overlooking the beautiful views of the ocean. The blow holes weren't as grand as I expected though. It looked more like waves crashing large against the cliffs. But there are a couple of other attractions only a short walk away so I suggest going to the... More

We stopped here as it was right on the roadside and later remembered reading about this attraction. It is a roadside wonder. Kids loved it... The blowhole sprays air in lowtide and waterparticles in hightide. Great views of the ocean and place to picnic and take a break..

a c ouple of blow holes through the lava. Good for at least a moment or two of watching the scenery. Breathe in. Breathe out. Then leave.

The "trou" used to be fun with the risk of getting ocean spray wet. The road has been changed and if the sea is calm there's no need to stop and look. It's included in your circle island tour.

Easily located immediately past the only road tunnel on the island, assuming you are driving clockwise from Pape'ete. But sadly, just not worth the bother. It is an amusing little hole in the rocks, fenced off, but you can get close enough to feel a momentary strong draught of air, accompanied by a loud roar, as the waves force air... More
