Bring a tripod!!! Great spot to capture nature at it's best. Bring a sweater it can get chilly toward the end of the day. Or pack a lunch and enjoy a few hours in the area, watching the blowhole or climb down to the beach next door (From here to eternity) it won't disappoint. Free parking available. Most people stay...

Spectacular coastline and proper parking area for seeing this blowhole which still works despite Japanese man who was killed watching it up too close. Have to be patient to see water come up like a whale.

An easy stop on the side of the road with great views from two sides of the blowhole. You may have to wait a little to see a really good wave blow through, but it’s definitely a place you should stop.

If u can't find it locate Sandy Beach State Park it's just south of that. It will say Scenic Outlook. Its obviously on the water and has a parking lot of about 30 cars. The best part is walk down the rocks which isn't hard and spend time at the beach. We went twice once on a Tuesday, there were... More

We were there a day the waves were really crashing so the blow hole was really going. Parking can be a nightmare so be patient. Take a look from above but then go to the far right and take the "steps" down. The little lagoon there is so pretty (and people swim in it). Then climb the formation to the... More

Overall the views are beautiful here. The hole was pretty mellow though the day we went. The water was calmer than it should be this time of year. It is a busy place for people to stop, so be patient for parking. Be patient the blowhole to show what it does.

Timing is everything and when I was there the sea was quite calm so unfortunately there was not much action at the blowhole. It was also supposed to be an area to see whales. Also - no whales, but it was a beautiful place to pull over and enjoy the view.

Yes the blow hole isn't always in action, it does depend on the waters and tide. The stop is still a delight for the views and you may even spot a pod of whales. Well worth a quick free park and look.

I always like to pull over and view the blowhole but also the super gorgeous secluded cove down below. This is a must see location.

I stopped at the Halona Blow hole twice. Once was at the actual pull off, where we saw plenty of people enjoying the beach down below (just south of the pullout), saw some turtles in the water and some whales out in the ocean. The blowhole itself is OK... not great, perhaps better in rough seas, but hardly a mist... More
