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 a variety of refreshments and local snacks, until you find yourself ascending a rocky outcrop with stunning views of the Indian Ocean.
An Interesting Spectacle
Once at the summit, you’ll be in awe when you reach this natural wonder. Be amazed when the water shoots to the sky and splashes back into the ocean, having sprayed all the wide-eyed wanderers standing by. The Hummanaya Blow Hole is a key tourist destination on 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 it is best to avoid a visit at that time.
Season to Visit
The jets of water are 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.
