The blowholes were awesome. We only just arrived and a local appeared from no-where offering to throw coconuts into a blowhole which shoot out like a canon (just a few tala)

Good time to go late Jan noone was there could of captured better photos but didnt stay long enough. Tide was low so blowholes didnt show off their signature pipes but was still worth it. Friendly owners, marked out white lines must stand behind.

The whole family enjoyed this. So much laughter was heard watching each other throw coconuts down the hole and watch them come flying back up into the air.

The tide was low when we got there so we didn't have the best experience, although when the coconut was thrown in to the holes they flew out. Was pretty awesome. They flew up high whilst the tide was low, would've been incredible watching them...More

You can see what happens at the blowholes from the carpark. You don't have to go all the way up to them but to experience it walk closer.
