Great view!

Nice scenic vantage point. Lots of tourists when I was there. Worth stopping for a few photos and to stretch your legs.

We walked down to the beach and went in the natural wave pool. The scenery was beautiful. People come and go so the parking was easier than in many locations. Worth stopping if you are driving around that side of the island.

A couple of miles east of Hanauma along Kanalianaole is the Halona Blowhole. All the conditions have to be correct for it to blow. People come and go relatively often, so despite limited parking, spaces do open up quickly. You can walk down to the beach, but there are better photos from the overlook. Besides, the sharp, unstable lava rocks... More

Nice view. One relaxing place. A place in Oahu that shouldn't miss. The hole wasn't spraying that much water in the air but it was still pretty cool.

This is a beautiful natural site that they have went to a lot of work to upgrade to keep it safe for visitors. Unfortunately people still walk over from the beach on the low rocks and to the cove right there at the Blow Hole while we were there 2 Soldiers lost their lives because of the dangerous surf in...

This is one of those natural sights that is pretty cool to visit if you're in Oahu. It's pretty popular with tour groups though so you may have trouble finding parking if you get there at the wrong time. When we got there the lot was pretty full but 10 minutes later it was totally empty. This is a good... More

Nice place to stop and look at, maybe take a picture or two, but given all of the other things to see and do on Oahu, not a must see.

The blowhole located on the islands South West Coast and is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. When the surf is right, the blowhole shoot water up to 30 feet in the air. Next to the Halona Blowhole is the Halona Beach Cove which is sometimes referred to as “Peering Place”.... More

We stopped at the fishing shrine and walked up for the view. Gorgeous views in either direction, with the bluest water you've seen! Huge waves crashing all around, that day, and the blowhole spouting every minute or so. The fishing shrine with statue of Jizo Bodhisatvu was an interesting waymarker, too. If you stop here, be prepared for a LOT... More

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
