This is a place well worth visiting. However before setting out you should know it is not a walk for everyone. It can be steep at times and also requires going over rough rock surfaces. So wear good shoes and be confident you are fit...More

The day of our visit was calm so the blow holes were quiet. The walk to the holes was excellent and the views magnificent.

When we went, the surge was not strong enough to force the water up and put. However, it was still a fun experience. It's a good trek down to the holes. Even if it doesn't blow, it is still exciting to sit there and listen...More

It's a lovely walk down to where the blow holes are but a long slog back up , if the waves aren't enough to make them blow then I'd stay at the top , well I will next time

We enjoyed the walk down to and then back up from the Blowholes. We wandered down near a beach area, and were happy to simply take in the beautiful scenery. We could feel and hear the waves hitting under the blowholes, but they weren't strong...More

We didnt go all the way to the blowholes as we asked a few people on their way back if they were doing anything and apparently the tides were not strong enough and there was little water action. Despite the winds howling and the sea...More

Sadly this is not really worth the walk unless you like more ocean views... the hole does not do much other than make a 'blowing' noise. Too dangerous for young children.

The blow holes were not spraying much when we visited but the sound was something else. Like a major bang each time the waves hit. They would be something else indeed in high winds, but you probably wouldn't want to be on those slippery rocks...More

Great if you like rock climbing. Beautiful views of the ocean and rocks. Wind was in the wrong direction to see the water blow through blowholes but still worth a look. Beautiful
