Quite a hike down. Make sure to wear sneakers. I wore flip flops. This was a mistake. Once you are down there, make sure to heed the warnings. DO NOT walk anywhere that is partially wet. You could get sucked into the blowhole or down...More

We drive the entire northern loop with a stop at the blowhole. Very cool. And if you think the Road to Hana is tough, trying driving south of the blowhole. Mostly single lane road but some fabulous views.

The hike down the blowhole is as exciting as the blowhole itself, and both are worth a visit. The hike takes you down the coast wall, so to speak, to this blowhole cut into the volcanic rock. Best during high tide obviously, it's fun to...More

The Nakalele Blowhole is a must-see on Maui, just be sure to go when it is both high tide and windy to get the best show! If you park at Mile Marker 38, it is a bit of a hike, but well worth it. I...More

Very winding roads lead to this interesting attraction. You can see the water shooting out of the blowhole from a higher location if you don't want to walk down closer.

We went this past week and it is always a crowd pleaser of a destination. It isn't that hard of a hike to get down to the blowhole. I'd definitely recommend going to see it and in the process, you get to see the lush...More

We hiked the acid war zone tail down to the blowhole. There's no trail whatsoever so don't be alarmed....just hike down and follow the coastline. There are two blowholes. The first one is smaller. You can't miss the second one. Definitely worth the day trip...More

My wife and I read about the blowhole being a worthwhile hike and it didn't disappoint. The blowhole had plenty of spray and water, and offered some exciting photo opportunities. For the more cautious hiker, I'd recommended the easier path that's closer to mile marker...More

We loved this hike! Absolutely wear good shoes! It is a bit slippery and rocky. Don't miss heart rock just off to the right of the blow hole! It is a great adventure. Be sure to bring water. It is not hard or long just...More

My husband and I went mid-day and it was great views and a fun experience! It can get very windy on the hike--would recommend going on a less windy summer day. Don't go if it has just rained--trail will be muddy and... More

Yes. You can walk a short distance from your car and see the blowhole. Regardless put your toddler in closed toe shoes so he/she doesn't hurt his/her feet on the lava rock.
