Arahoho Blow Hole
See the Blow Hole
The right swell conditions produce a geyser-like fountain of water that looks very impressive coming up from what is known as the trou du souffleur (blowhole). Located by the road just before Tiarei at PK22 -- if you're coming from Papeete, the blowhole is where the road bends around a corner and you'll see a parking area just beyond it. Just past the blowhole there's a beautiful black-sand beach sliver that makes a great place for a picnic. You'll sometimes even find vendors selling fruit here.
