Alofaaga Blowholes, Savai'i

4.4
Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
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.

  • Payed 5 tala each drove down a rough road and found the holes. Best to come here high tide. The black lava was very hot. Better to come later in the day  more »

  • Exciting experience to throw coconuts in blowholes.
  • Awesome spot. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area. Just 5 Tala each. The road was not too bad at all, just a few bumps and gravel, we drove down on a scooter carrying luggage. Also the guys at the entrance where selling fresh coconuts for 3 tala, but he “forgot” to give the 2 tala change. Stay safe on the rocks.
  • A place so wonderful...However, if they want to go and see each other, they ask them to pay the admission fee again.
  • You have to pay entrance then down the road, you have to pay parking too - to another family. Park your car at the entrance and walk 10 min.
  • The access road was quite rough for a normal car. We were charged an entrance fee towards the start of the access track, then charged for parking our car by the blowholes. We later found out that if you park by the viewing platform you don't get charged for parking. There was a neat view of the coast and the patterns in the lava were cool too.
