“Pretty cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

The blow holes are quite cool. Long drive out there though. Be careful (as others have commented) of the old man that may ask you for up to 50tala each to throw coconuts into the blowholes! We went with an organised tour so just got the standard charge (10tala I think). Just drive past the old man! If it was a reasonable $1/ coconut then I would say do it- but he is exploiting the attraction to the max! Also take plenty if hand sanitiser for the toilet!

“Bring a coconut”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Well worth visiting. The drive along the unsealed road is breath taking. Good place to take a picnic lunch and definitely a camera. Grab some coconut from the side of the road on the drive in and give them to the guy to throw into the blow holes and watch them fly!

The elderly man who accompanied us was amazing, through coconuts into the blowhole and next thing you know they are blown up into the sky!

“powerful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

what can I say, what an amazing spot, the power and beauty of nature. It was like our guide was calling on the gods and I was blowen away by how far the coconuts flew, not for the faint hearted.

“beautiful spot, awesome blows”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

we drove here, paid our $5 tala per person to the men at the fale, and kept driving past the 'coconut man' (he requires another payment). really enjoyed the view, watching the blow holes and the waves, we had a beautiful day for it!
