Blow Holes

  One of Tonga's most popular places, about 12 miles west of the capital, is Pupu'a Puhi. It means blow holes. The western islands of Tonga are formed from coral reefs. Waves wash against the coral, the pressure from it wears a hole, causing the water to shoot up to over 100ft. into the air! These are located in the village of Houma.
