Its a good blowhole, we were lucky to have some big waves coming in so got good effects as she blew. Stand by he small hole on the other side and feel the power of the blow, I was quite surprised. It's not possible to...More

When I was there work was going on to make the area safe from falling rocks, so not all areas were open. The areas that were open were interesting. I am interested in wildlife and saw the Gobis (rock hopping fish)9, rock crabs and birds....More

They are renewing the site. Impressive blowhole and nothing I've ever seen! Definitely worth a visit.

Incredible lava tube extending out into the ocean allowing water and air to frequently blow up through the land mass. Sit in the splash zone ... if you dare! Gorgeous scenery which depicts all of the tropical bliss in one incredible location.

The waves were good and the blowhole was working but it was underwhelming. A crevasse in the rocks blew some damp air out every few minutes but we all thought the coach trip from Papeete was not worth the effort.

Although the place is being remodelled, it is very easy to park and walk to the blow hole. The best is to watch the reactions of unsuspecting visitors when the waves create the air flow and accompanying noise.

Another site that is easily accessed right off the main road. This one is kind of cool. There are holes in the volcanic shoreline that, when rushed by the incoming waves, generate of soft – very loud whoosh, apparently similar to a whale’s blowhole. There...More

Tracey (of Unique Tahiti Tours) took us to this unexpected site covered with black volcanic rocks (reminding me of the island's origins) with a silver beach tucked in. But the blowhole was the exciting feature: a periodic explosion of surf from an opening in the...More
