Yet another free attraction to visit, lovely down hill walk, good distance from carpark so bring your walking shoes, unfortunately it isn't always blowing, so its the luck of the draw

I would definitely ask tourists returning from the blowhole 'Is it worth the walk'? and 'are they blowing today'? There is no guarantee they will be blowing as they rely on certain conditions which are explained at the beginning of the walk. There is also...More

Long walk from carpark and no signs to let you know how far it is to walk, was an issue as my husband had just had knee surgery. We made the trek and was a little disappointed.

Reviews of the Blowholes probably depend on the action of the ocean on the day of the reviewer's visit. On this occasion I will agree with previous reviewers that it was a beautiful downhill walk to listen to air gushing in to the Blowholes whilst...More

These blow holes are a reasonable walk down from the car park and a long walk back! The scenery is great and enjoyed the views of rugged coastline on the way down but as others have said the signage down at the bottom is unclear...More
