On an especially good day at Mapu’a ‘a Vaca (Chief’s Whistles), hundreds of blowholes spurt at once. They are best viewed on a windy day with a strong swell, when the water, forced up through natural vents in the coralline limestone, can shoot 30m into the air. The blowholes stretch 5km along the southwestern coast, near the village of Houma.
