This was a neat stop and had a beautiful view. We did not see any whales, but were told they can be seen from this point during the winter.

Just located off the main road, this was a great place to stop for 10 minutes to check out the blow hole and also a small secluded beach

Stopped here while driving anti clockwise around Oahu Island. Nothing much was happening with the blowhole and not spectacular. Nice views of the coastline, cliffs and mountains. Beautiful spot to stop for 15 minutes. Lots of tour buses with Japanese tourists.

The blowhole itself is not the most impressive I have seen but overall a fun visit, along a great scenic drive.

I love driving here to watch the sun come up from behind Maui.Such an awesome way to start the day.Theres a beach you can go down to,but no swimming down there.But is a great location to bring some food and sit down and watch the sun come up.Blessed to start a day like that in such amazing location!

Not only go to the Blowhole, but once you park, walk towards the right and near the highway, there is a pathway to get to the beach. We saw two sea turtles!! The waves and current can be dangerous so be careful. We climbed all over the lava and saw some crabs. There is also a cave under the highway.... More

The drive to and from is full of breathtaking views and stops. The way the ocean carve the blow hole out of lava rock is the magic of nature. You have to see it. We took Waikiki Trolley tours which I highly recommend their 7 day all inclusive pass.

There are breathtaking views to and from here. The fact that water ate through the lava just right to create the effect is amazing. You have to see it. I recommend the Waikiki Trolley tours.

We went today in the morning around 11. The tides we kind of low so there wasn't a lot of action, but we waited around a bit and saw some cool blowhole action. Very cool! It was super windy, but not cold at all.

After a trip to Hanauma Bay, we decided to stop by the Blowhole. After reaching we got out and viewed it from above where every now and then when the waves came in, it pushed the water through the hole, causing sort of a geyser. That when we noticed that you could actually walk down towards the beach and to... More
