Hummanaya Blow Hole
Hummanaya Blow Hole is located in the town of Dickwella, approximately 20 minutes from Tangalle. Known to be the largest blow hole in Sri Lanka, the Hummanaya Blow Hole is a great excursion for all types of travellers. Head over to the quiet town, enjoy a 20-minute walk past a small village; with vendors selling all sorts of refreshments and local snacks, until you find yourself ascending a rocky outcrop with stunning views of the Indian Ocean. Once at the summit, you’ll be in awe when you reach this natural wonder. Be amazed when the seawater shoots to the sky and splashes back in a cool, refreshing spray back on to its wide-eyed wanderers. The Hummanaya Blow Hole is a key tourist destination in the southern coast, and can be visited at any time during the day. Do keep in mind that by noon to mid-afternoon, the sun rays might be too harsh, so climbing during these times are generally not recommended.
The jets of water is generally shot to a height of 25-30m, however, this is generally between the months of April-September; considered to be the ‘off-peak’ season for the south of Sri Lanka.
