Spouting Horn is close to the road, has a nice parking lot, and a sidewalk takes you to the edge of a cliff for easy viewing and photography. Lots of roosters and hens, a la Kauai, and a set of souvenir vendors on the site.

Make sure you go through the canopied area with wares for sale. The spouting horn is just past the tents and we almost missed it because we went on the other side of the parking lot, since we didn't want to buy any trinkets. You aren't obligated to buy anything.

This is a cool blowhole and I would recommend stopping by if you are in the area. It is not worth an hour drive but it is a cool thing to see especially if you have never seen a blowhole. The vendors that are set up are locals who have great gifts and souvenirs for good prices

Was amazing to watch and look at. There are some days that the Spouting Horn is inactive, but the day I went, the horn was going crazy. The water was going up to 50 ft high! Amazing to watch.

If you're in Poipu and are looking for something to do for 15 minutes, this is interesting. Not something I would drive from the north to see or spend much time at.

Spent a while watching and listening. Pretty cool watching the water spout when the waves hit. Definitely a must see if you happen to be in the area.

Spouting Horn is a quick visit unless you get caught at the vendors near by. To visit from Poipu is ok but to come from other parts of the island I would not say it is worth the trip
