Long Description:
This place got its current name due to the sound and water projection caused by the water injection in a basaltic rock channel. When the ocean is wild the rumble is constant and high columns of water are raised due to the pressure of the sea water pushed into the channel by the waves.

For those into Geocaching, this spot has an Earthcache - the only public accessible cache in the country at this date. Actually, a reading of the listing will offer further details about the spot:
