Great to visit the blowholes but the access road is in serious need of some work! The entry fee is fair but then to pay extra to park your car or van is a total rip off!!!

Value for money.Only $7 Samoan dollars. What an experience. Fascinating to see the local guide throw in a coconut and watch it come skyrocketing out of the blowholes.

very impressive by large swell and high tide! and well worth T10 for the old man
the lonely planet says not to park by the old fales to avoid a parking fee, but that creates a bad feeling with the lady at the fales. may be she deserves her T5 as well.

The blow holes were certainly very impressive. Our taxi driver demonstrated how to throw coconuts down the blow holes and have them shot straight back up however I would not recommend the inexperienced do this rather dangerous activity...

This place is incredible, it's a must see and probably one of the highlights of our trip. the only regret I have is possibly the coconut man, He is quite a character, he waits in a fale down the road, when you drive in he jumps up and asks if you want to see him throw coconuts in the hole which we did. He then gets in your car and you drive down the road with him. From memory I think it cost us 5 tala each for him and another 20 tala for the lady at the end. He is very hard to understand but is a wonderful character chuckling away to himself the whole time. The show he puts on is pretty good but once he's finished he rushes around to gather his coconuts and wants to go. Because he's in your car you feel obliged to take him hence we felt rather rushed to leave when we would have happily spent another hour or so just marvelling at the wonder of the place.
