Alofaaga Blowholes, Savai'i

4.5
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Savai'i
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.

  • Amazing! The water shoots way up high from this blowhole making a roaring sound it is great. The old man in the picture threw coconuts into the blowhole and it was almost like that got the blowhole got so furious it shot the coconut way up high. Great fun. A bit difficult to get to as the road is very narrow and gravelly but worth going to. Don't miss it!
  • - 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.
  • Fantastic natural wonder, a must see when visiting Samoa! We were lucky to have a guide with us who was able to give us some history on this amazing structure!
  • Impressive and worth seeing!
  • Brill little natural wonder make sure you visit whilst visiting the islands
