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

It's a scenic view, between Hanauma Bay and Sea Life Park. So if your planning on going to either one of those places. You should consider stopping there. It's a natural wonder, There is plenty of parking, but not much else. It's well worth pulling off the road to see. The only other thing you need to know is that... More

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.
