Unlike some reviewers I thought this blow hole was far less impressive than others we have seen in other locales around the world. Yet, what I did like was the deep growling noise heard from the "dragon" which was on the other side of the...More

Incredible lava tube extending out into the ocean allowing water and air to frequently blow up through the land mass. Sit in the splash zone ... if you dare! Gorgeous scenery which depicts all of the tropical bliss in one incredible location.
