Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho, Papeete

(2.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho and other Papeete attractions into our Papeete tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Interesting to see the water blown with such force. The place offers a very nice view. However, it would be nice of the Government allow memories to reopen shops.
