Hummanaya Blow Hole, Dickwella
Known to be the second largest in the world and the largest in Sri Lanka alone, discover the Hummanaya Blow Hole while you explore the southern coast! Located in Kudawella, a little after the bustling town of Matara; the Hummanaya Blow Hole can be accessed by a short 5-10 minute walk through a small, quiet village dotted with local vendors selling handicrafts, street food and refreshing beverages. Enjoy scenic views of the beautiful blue coast as you trek along the pathway leading to the attraction. After the main entrance and ticket counter, trek through rugged terrain before reaching this natural attraction. The blow hole attracts tourists from around the world to witness its magnificence.
The Hummanaya Blow Hole is a natural wonder that sprays a jet of sea water into the air between two giant rocks; sometimes reaching heights of over 80 – 100 feet, and should be added to your list of things to see while you stay with us in Mirissa. The best time to see this is during high tide, as you can experience the salty spray on your skin as seawater jets towards the sky and falls back on its wide-eyed audience.
