Near the East End of Grand Cayman, lies a rather unique natural attraction. The limestone foundation around the island is eroded by the surf of the ocean creating holes and caves along the shore. These holes allow for the tide to come up underneath the surface and force ocean water up and through the hole creating a blowhole.

The blowholes are accessible to visitors, however, the surface is very uneven and slippery. Caution should be taken walking out towards the blowholes themselves.

Know Before You Go

If you stand too close to the blowhole, there's an excellent chance you'll get drenched.
