The Blow Holes, Albany

2.3
#5 of 8 in Nature in Albany
On a windy day, watch as the sea surges through the rock formations and forcefully spurts water through the granite cracks at The Blow Holes. Stand on the rocks to see the rugged coastline and windswept cliffs. Be careful, though, since the waves are wild and dangerous. Close by are the Gap (natural slit in the rock) and Natural Bridge, all part of a national park. Put The Blow Holes into our Albany vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Where to stay in Albany

While virtually free of large hotels, Albany does offer visitors a vast selection of guesthouses, motels, and rental apartments. Many of these are conveniently within the city center, perfect for sightseeing. If you prefer to stay closer to the beaches and a bit farther from the center, the suburbs of Middleton Beach and Emu Point are the places to go. Also on the coast, the Collingwood Park area is the best choice for golfers, with the 18-hole Albany Golf Course just around the corner.
