Alofaaga Blowholes


These impressive blowholes in the village of Taga on south-west Savaii are wave power in its purest form, as they propel a roaring jet of water hundreds of feet up into the air. They are particularly worth watching when locals throw coconuts into the holes and these are blasted into the air as well.

Another site of interest here at the blowholes is Pa Sopo’ia Cave. It is believed that this cave is an ancient pathway where the ancestors spirits travel to reach the Devil’s Haden at Cape Mulinu’u, the final meeting place before they enter the Spirit World known to Samoans as Pulotu. Ask the local Matais to show you the way.
