Blow Hole Hummanaya, Dikwella

1.0
#12 of 20 in Nature in Southern Province
A natural wonder in the middle of a rocky cliff, Blow Hole Hummanaya shoots seawater in the air with a loud whooshing audible from far away. Reputedly the second-largest blowhole in the world, this geyser-like spout can sometimes reach 30 m (100 ft). Snap pictures of the spray against a background of cliffs and the blue-green expanse of water. Onsite facilities include a tiny museum on marine life, restrooms, parking, food, drinks, and souvenirs. The hole blows year-round, but its force varies. Work out when and for how long to visit Blow Hole Hummanaya and other Dikwella attractions using our handy Dikwella trip builder site .
