Cool site to visit with a beautiful view and hart pumping blow hole on good swell days. Can get busy on holidays and during peak tourist season so best to go early.

We visited this on our way back from Kataragama. About 10 min walk on uneven steps so watch out. We visited this in April but the best time to visit would. be May to August as rough seas will blow lot more water.

It's ok. The walk to the blow golem was more scenic than the bliwhole itself. People have used the blowhole as a garbage dump, so it's intended purpose is lost. Also, there is a charge to enter said blowhole Would avoid.

This is a seasonal thing, only good when the sea is rough I'd say during May till October. This attraction is one of the rare things in the word made by mother nature! Good visit if you are in the area...

What can i say? It's not worth the 250 Rupees. You have to be very lucky to see the Blowhole in action.

I think the best things in Sri Lanka are free. This one whilst it costs 250 rupees per person, is quite cheap. There isn't much to see, if you were driving by on your scooter it's an ok visit. But I wouldn't pay a tuk...More
