Dramatic and sometimes dangerous scrabble over lava rocks along a steep trail takes you to an uncommon and dry viewpoint close to the blowhole. The more common trail down from the pull out is not really pretty... this one takes you very close to the briny sea. Unfortunately, it involves parking at a lonelier pull out. In my case, even though I left my glove compartment open, thieves broke open the passenger’s window. But still with it!

The hike down to the Nakalele Blowhole is very rugged, rough lava rock and is a little steep in some areas but it wasn't too difficult. I would recommend wearing a good pair of hiking shoes in this area. There are signs warning about getting too close to the blowhole but I saw many who were standing right next to it. The scenery here is very beautiful and is worth stopping just to explore the area and look around even if you don't want to hike all the way down to the blowhole. There was also plenty of parking on the day I was there. Highly recommend.

The blowhole in Waiʻānapanapa State Park is far more impressive. This location is one of the more crowded spots too. You have to hike downhill quite a bit and the payoff isn’t really worth it relative to how amazing other attractions are in Maui.

This is a great site to see on Maui! Please be careful! It is dangerous to get too close! I knew a boy that was sucked into this blow home in the mid 70’s. He barely escaped with his life. He was lucky in that he was sucked back out into the Ocean unconscious. Several people risked their lives by diving into the ocean to save him! There have been several people who have not been so lucky!

This place was Sandre's worst nightmare. We went to the place where they said the blow hole was and when we got there there was a BIG walk to it and we didnt know there would be that. Sandre was NOT PLeased. She still talks about it! we were told by hotels staff that we it would be an 'easy hike' but it was more like it was HARD CLIMBING. How do they expect older people or fuller people to do there is beyonmd me?? And when i got to the bottom because Sandre went to the car (chafe) i coudnlt even swim there!!!!!!! BIG let down false advertisement that's for sure just a big squirting hole and you can't even stand over it because the hole top is to round.. Drive to far and to long to be worth it if you get dizzys like Sandre in the car getting sick and throwing up... NOT FUN you should not do it unless you have to
