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.

Absolutely a curious spot that I think everyone should check it out and experience the funny and strong wind coming out from a tiny hole.

We've seen some great blow holes in NZ and Australia but this wasn't as big. Still, an interesting place to stop while touring Tahiti,and it's practically on the road...

Part of my round Tahiti tour. It is a blowhole located on the northern part of the island. Scenery is lovely.
