When surf and wind are high the water can shoot up to 30 m into the sky. The Blowhole is quite impressive but also dangerous. The waves can be very dangerous and people have been pulled into the blowhole or into the sea by rogue waves. It is advisable not to walk on wet rocks, as they are still in the range of the waves.
