Spouting horn was only about 2 miles from where we were staying, so I'm glad we went to see it. The beach is fenced off all around so you can only see it from the viewing area.

The snore before the spout is pretty loud! Parking was plenty, and the viewing area was right there. Not much to do but look at it from the upper viewing area because they have blocked off going down to the spout. I did see a recent video of someone who went down to record the spray but I wasn't interested... More

Started my Saturday morning with a trip to see the Sprouting Horn. This natural wonder is a free local attraction that is a must see! Plenty of parking and local merchants line the pathway to see the breathe taking sight. Each set of waves creates a new experience. Take the family and enjoy the view!

We came to see Spouting Horn, but the water wasn't very rough when we were there, therefore it wasn't "spouting" as high, or as loud as other times I have seen it. Years ago when we visited, there was no fence, and we were able to go down on the lava near the hole. I'm sure it is safer this... More

This is one of those easy stopovers for older or handicapped visitors. You can park very close and there are also craft booths nearby. It is much better in the summer when the swells are coming from that direction. As another visitor said worth the stop if you are on the south side.

It's a quick stop or you can hang for a bit. Loved it and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Would definitely go back and would have hated to miss it. You need to go!

Not worth traveling nevertheless pay for a tour to see this tiny spout horn. Not a big deal. Thankfully I was passing by Koloa in our rental car and decided to go see. It was just ok for me. So if your in the area fine. One more thing to say you saw but don't pay extra to go see.

This is worth seeing ...... once. Once you have observed it for about 10-15 minutes, you will be ready to leave. It is a spectacular site created by holes in the lava rock and the ocean waves hitting the holes in the lava. The spouting does vary in height and intensity and that in itself is interesting. It takes a... More

Certainly something to see if you are on the island, but not the biggest thrill around. The shopping in the covered are brings some local merchants with good selection and prices.
