Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho, Papeete

2.9
#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.

  • We did the tour of the island of Tahiti and of course we stopped at the hole in the blower, well laid out now. A little walk to add to the tour of the island. Well laid out as small shop, toilets but also picnic areas. Do

  • "" during our visit to Tahiti, our guide stopped us on the "hole of the blower"! When you don't expect it to be, the surprise is amazing, even impressive! There was a lot of swell, so not knowing what would happen, I pushed a big cry and made a good back! to see!
