with the rock formations and the water. It is very easy to drive to and enjoy the scenery along the way. The blow hole blows if you are patient to see it. I would not get to close to it.

Very easy to drive by if you dont know what you're looking for. This was easily my favourite place on the island. Beautiful sights and sand and the water here is great. The lookout above here is fantastic for whale watching. And there is a little known back trail for koko crater that starts very nearby here. A word to... More

Fair amount of parking but extremely busy so parking can be iffy. Wave weren't real active so most of the blows were pretty tame.The surrounding scenery is pretty good so well worth the stop regardless of the wave activity.

The best time to visit is after a storm for the best activity. We went on a calm day so we saw a view small sprays. If your in the main parking lot you can go all the way to the right and see the cove where the famous love scene in Here To Eternity was shot, you can even... More

There was no water blowing out as the waves were not fierce. However, it was beautiful there. To see the lava rock formations were worth the stop.

I love this spot we happen to hit it when the blowhole was not active so we didn't get to see it. So be sure to hit it when the tide and waves are right to see it active. The beach by it was amazing and worth hanging out at.

Stopped off during our island driving tour. Weather was indifferent and water conditions limiting so we did not wait around for long after first seeing the modest blowhole action. But, even on the best days, am not sure this would merit much of a diversion to go and see this

Besides the amazing views from this stop, if you "carefully" walk down the rocky path on the right just as you enter the parking lot, you will be at Halona Beach Cove or "Eternity Beach" made famous in the 1953 film "From Here To Eternity" starring Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr. The iconic love scene (by 1953 standards involving) Lancaster... More

We pulled over to take some photos, perfect place to do so. A bit crowded, lots of people doing the same thing. We got a couple beautiful photos. The sight is so gorgeous no matter where you look. This look out area is most definitely worth stopping to see!

It is like a scenic stop along the road of Kalanianole Highway. I guess the season that I went was a very busy tourist season that parking looked way too packed. People were fighting over spaces and I was thinking where's the Aloha? Anyways, the blow hole is pretty easy to see from the parking area. When the sets of... More
