Very fun. No one tried to sting us for $ with the coconut thing. They're impressive enough without chucking stuff into them. A highlight of Samoa

The blowholes are sign posted from the main road. As we started to drive down the side road a man/woman stopped us and asked us to pay 10 Tala for two, we did. Continued driving down the road and an old man stopped us and mumbled something about the blowholes, I told him we had already paid. He was happy... More

Took a drive out to show our freinds. Takes about 30mins from the ferry terminal When you arrive there is a 5 tala per person entry fee then a 1/2 km drive to the lava and blowholes. When you arrive you will probably meet the coconut man. For 20 Tala he will thro coconuts in the blow hole so they... More

I have never seen a blowhole before and Alofa'ga just blew my mind... Oh what a fierce force!! You must go to Savai'i even if it is only to see these mighty blowholes. Entry fee is WST5 per person. There you will see a old Samoan waiting for you and he has some coconut husks in a basket. If you... More

This is the best blowhole I have seen. The routine is to get some coconuts and throw one at a time Into the hole before the blast hits. You just need to watch out when the coconut returns from the sky that you don't get it landing on your head. You pay 5WST for entry but then when you get... More

The Alofa'aga Blowholes is one of the best examples of this natural phenomenon in the world -- and are rich in local legend. We stopped here during a day tour with a local guide, who presided over tossing coconut husks into one of the blow holes to spectacular effect (they launched some 60 meters into the air). For tourists complaining... More

The blow holes are good but it is too expensive. You can see it in about 15 minutes. We ( family of 4 in one car) was charged 20tala. The guy who took our money asked if we wanted to see the coconuts, we said yes. He didn't tell us that cost extra. On the way out he asked for... More

We really enjoyed this attraction. The blowholes are a definite must see when travelling to Savaii. We had the old man take us through and enjoyed how informative he was about the village and blowholes as an attraction.

The tide was obviously out at the time we visited however the locals still took our money and didn't say anything. The road to actually get to the blowholes is very rough and there is no clear signage. It's such a shame that this area hasn't been maintained; maintenance of the beach fales and clearing the rubbish would make this... More
