Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho, Papeete

3.5
#Must See
Get splashed by the waves at Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho, a strange geological highlight of Tahiti's coast. Long ago, liquid lava cut a tunnel through the volcanic rock of the coast here, which now allows seawater into its confined space. When a wave comes in, it gets trapped and is forced up and out through the "blowhole," spraying the surrounding area and looking much like a volcanic geyser. Stand on the viewing platform and get covered in the warm seawater as you snap photos of the impressive and unusual natural spectacle. Note that the attraction remains closed until early 2016.

  • Very interesting, the community has all expenses to new parking walk, I knew the site before, was more wild but now very accessible to all, a good time is great fun, Pascal

  • We were really impressed with the viewing area. It was well groomed and simply lovely. The sound and force of the water was incredible. Don’t miss the Three water falls near by.  more »
  • By big time this place is impressive. Otherwise we find the beauty of Tahitian landscapes and it is already a lot.

  • Great view! You can sit at a couple of tables and have a good time with family and friends. The Blowhole itself is worth taking a video with epic reactions guaranteed! Nice surfing spot but you gotta follow the locals for the first time. Clean public restrooms available.
  • The blow hole is nice to look at for a few minutes of entertainment. I'd recommend taking a surfboard to this location
  • It is one of the best place in Tahiti. You can also take your lunch with a beautiful view.
  • Cool place with black sand beach and blow hole. Nicely set up with walking path along waters edge and lots of wild life/crabs on the rocks below.
  • There are some really beautiful photo opportunities at this spot. Got some cool slow motion videos of the blowhole as well that we're really neat.
