Alofaaga Blowholes, Savai'i
(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Created by a series of ancient lava tubes connected to the ocean below, Alofaaga Blowholes is a marvelous natural feature that occurs whenever waves break against the lower tube openings. Watch water spray upwards through these blowholes every few seconds and jet hundreds of feet into the air. Exercise caution when you visit and keep an eye on children, as the attraction is unfenced and the rocks are slippery. Locals often drop coconuts into the blowholes to send them flying.

  • - A bit of a challenge to get there via car; just drive slowly on the unpaved road. - Grab some coconuts from the roadside on your way to the blowhole. You can toss them in and watch them get spit back out of the blowhole, but be careful. Actually, you might want to just ask the locals to do that. - Inexpensive entry fee. - You can take a lunch and hang out there a bit; there are some areas where you can sit and enjoy the scenery.
  • Brill little natural wonder make sure you visit whilst visiting the islands
  • Good description I guess
  • Beautiful blowholes and you can stay directly on the beach in Fawelas. (Mat and sleeping bag, take) also is good... With magnificent starry sky and roar of the blowholes...
