#702 Alofaaga Blowholes, Savai'i, Samoa

On a spectacularly beautiful underpopulated coast in the middle of the Pacific Ocean are the very cool Alofaaga Blowholes. Though perhaps not as magnificent as other blowholes and possibly underwhelming if you were to come all this way, they are nevertheless an interesting feature of nature.
You could watch a coconut be tossed in only to fly up, perhaps a rouge wave will catch you by surprised and splash you from the cliffs behind you while you are waiting for the next wave to shoot the spray up at you. 
The Taga Blowholes, as they are also known, were created by lava flows which created tubes which were later eroded away.
