There is no guarantee that you will see the holes blowing but it is a nice scenic walk down with great views along the coast.

The trail down to the blow holes is easy enough. They are well-signed once you get near to them. This is one of those places where a little patience reaps rewards. If you just turn up and the holes are not blowing it could be...More
