It is an easy drive from Waikiki, and all of the drive is gorgeous. The blowhole is fun to watch - especially when you are trying to catch it on film! To the left you have Sandy Beach, and to the right a gorgeous lagoon that young people seemed to enjoy. (There are steps leading down).

the halona blowhole is a must to see - easy to find - best to see in the afternoon during high tide. parking lot fill up quick but empties just as fast, its worth about 15 min trip -so if you wanna wait its worth it.

Worth a stop for about 10-15 minutes when going around the island. At the right is Halona Beach Cove aka the "Here to Eternity Beach".

The blow hole is at its best at high tide so time your trip accordingly. We stopped here around 1pm when the tide was very high & the blow hole was was an amazing show!!!

It is an interesting site, but not extraordinary. Water spouts up through the blowhole in a fine mist, but maybe 10 feet high at most and only intermittently. We stopped as part of a minitour of the island - not worth a trip just to see this one site on the tour - but as part of the mini-tour it... More

We stopped off to see the Halona Blowhole. In the space of about 5 minutes we saw the water shoot up through the hole several times. A great stop, right near Lanai Lookout.

We stopped here whilst driving around the island , and were very lucky the conditions were good for the blow hole to be active. Even if it wasn't , the view from this point is beautiful, and great for photos.
