Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho, Papeete

3.0
Get splashed by the waves at Trou du Souffleur de Arahoho, a strange geological highlight of Tahiti's coast. Long ago, liquid lava cut a tunnel through the volcanic rock of the coast here, which now allows seawater into its confined space. When a wave comes in, it gets trapped and is forced up and out through the "blowhole," spraying the surrounding area and looking much like a volcanic geyser. Stand on the viewing platform and get covered in the warm seawater as you snap photos of the impressive and unusual natural spectacle. Note that the attraction remains closed until early 2016.

  • To do if you pass in the corner but the experience is nothing extraordinary. The noise and the breath that is released is impressive. Go to the shop next to the car park the price of the beads and bracelets are worth it
