Mapu a Vaea, Tonga

The best show of Mapu a Vaea blowholes is during high tide and when a large wave crashes in.

Mapu a Vaea, Blowholes

The best view of these blowholes is from Houma, which isn’t far from Tonga’s capital. While you’re watching the water crash into the rocks and travel up the naturally-made channels to see the water shoot upwards like a geyser, you can potentially get drenched. Watch in awe, mesmerized; listen to the whistling sound that you wouldn’t have imagined you’d hear along this stretch of beach. There are hundreds of blowholes along the coastline that simply inundates the onlooker with a feeling of wonder.
