    A fun little 15-45 minute excursion while driving the beautiful coast. Wear your hiking shoes because it’s easy to roll an ankle on the hike down. The blowhole is something fun and different but don’t get too close, as the amount of suction that it creates can pull you in quicker than you think. Enjoy!

    It’s a great and wonderful place to see the power and beauty of the sea and waves, I only gave it 4 stars because the road and the trail are a bit treacherous. The road is narrow and curvy, and not everyone is patient, drive carefully and pull over for locals. Once you arrive, the trek down can be slick, rocky and requires you to traverse a pretty steep disorganized trail … wear good shoes.

    It’s beautiful, the coastline here is rugged and powerful, blowhole is exciting and makes a good show when the waves are big.

    Parking was easy to get in and out of. The hike down to the blow hole wasn't bad, as long you wear some hiking shoes. I did it in slides (sandals) and made it down fine, but it would have been a ton better in shoes! Once you're down there, it is pretty cool. The blow hole wasn't super active when we were there, but it still had some great views of the ocean and sealife

    Great view! I would definitely be careful going down, it can be a pretty steep hike with some sharp rock, so wear close toed shoes. While the blowhole itself is the main treat, check out the view at the parking spot!

    Worth the stop to walk the 15 minutes or so to the blowhole. Don't get too close. There are plenty of rocks to sit on. It was neat to see how the salt had eaten away at the rocks nearby because of the salt. You can see how it looks like acid rain corroded them, but it is all from the salt.
    The blowhole erupts every couple minutes. We went around 445pm and saw gusts 20 feet high. There were also what looked like water cyclones shooting up. It was very cool!
