Blow Hole Hummanaya, Dikwella

(190+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
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. Put Blow Hole Hummanaya into our Dikwella vacation trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dikwella.
