Jacks Bay Road, Hinahina

This family friendly bay beach connects to a walking track that will take walkers to a blowhole! Heavy swells from the southern ocean on this exposed coastline can create an impressive display - waves are compressed through the underground tunnel and explode into the blowhole. There are plenty of roaring sound effects from both the water and an onrush of air, created by the surge from the sea expelling the air from the tunnel.

There are also excellent views from this headland; with the broad sweep of the coastline down to Penguin Bay and beyond a feature.
