Although it takes time before water from the ocean rushes in & pushes it's way up the hole to spray into the sky, but it's well worth the wait! Halona Blow Hole is a natural wonder and very cool to see when the surf is rough on this side of the island. Reminds me of the Old Faithful (at Yellowstone... More

It is pretty cool to see water spray like a geyser but you see it for a few minutes and that's it. Not worth going out of your way for. It is about 10 minutes walk from Sandy's Beach, so it can be a quick stop on the way to Hanauma Bay.

Not much to do here except watch the blowhole. It can take a while but eventually a wave will come in just right and make water shoot straight up. Its pretty neat. Plus the site provides some great views.

This was one of those places we kind of stumbled upon by accident. We were taking a drive up the coast and saw something called the "Blowhole" on the map so we pulled over. It's pretty cool to watch, and the view is amazing too. Parking can be tricky, but it only took a few minutes for us to find... More

Halona Blow Hole is a natural wonder and very cool to see when the surf is rough on this side of the island. It's not the same anymore with all the fencing everywhere that takes away from the natural setting. But that's because of idiots that would go down to the blowhole itself and got sucked in then sued the... More

Halona Bay and the nearby Halona Blowhole is most famous for the Eternity Beach area, which was the site of the love scene between Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in 1953's 'From Here to Eternity'. It is possible to take a slippery and uneven natural rock stairway down to the beach, and the day we visited, many were in the... More

Stopped here twice as we wound around the island. Beautiful rugged view of the pacific with the blowhole blowing mist. Both times we got to see humpback whales off shore!

Great view from up high! Watched the ocean crash in to the rocks creating the blowhole. There is also a beach area if you are willing to take the walk down. Parking can be limited, but hang around...someone will leave. It's worth it!

It is a really neat site. The beach is very nice and it has a hidden beach. It is a must see. And you can do some hiking

This is worth stopping at if you are near by. The whole area is a beautiful drive. You have to be patient for it to blow. Not very big while we were there, but still worth the stop.
