You’ll have a long hike from the parking lot down to the blowhole. It can be a little bumpy and slippery on the way down so I recommend wearing aqua shoes or sandals with fasteners. Also, there tends to be quite a bit of pedestrian traffic so you’ll need to be patient.

Once you get to the bottom and the blowhole, enjoy and take lots of pictures!

1. Don't take highway 340 unless you want to drive one of the most dangerous and scary roads. Way worse than Road to Hana.

Go to Lahaina to get there.

2. Blowhole was great.

3. Hike down took us about 10 mi minutes.

The hike down was definitely worth it. Fun rock climbing type trail, then we spent 30 minutes enjoying the show.

Went at about 3p with my 14 year old. Was not blasting like crazy, but was definitely worth it. Very easy for him on the way up and down. Saw plenty of younger kids doing it. Is it doable? Absolutely. Is it difficult? It can be, especially on the way up. I was exhausted.
My son and I only did it in slippas so don’t let footwear, or lacktherof, stop you.
Mahalo!

We drove over an hour to get to the blowhole. Unfortunately it wasn’t blowing as the tide was low, and it started raining as we descended the path. With only a tiny amount of rain the rocks became very slippery, although it was quite easy to lose footing while it was dry too.

Do not attempt to do this in flip flops, you really need decent trainers at least. There is also no shade on the path.

Such a treat, once at the spot had to climb down then back up but definitely worth it. Closed toe shoes are a must. The area surrounding the blowhole was amazing.
Easy to become mesmerized just watching the water shoot up, down then up again. The water shot up several feet high. It's a must do while in Maui 🙂.

Wear decent shoes and take your time getting down to blowhole. Once you’ve soaked it all in, keep hiking over and around to the ‘ lighthouse’. Views from all around are amazing. The red & black lava ruins are incredible. Highly recommend.

Fun hike down to blow hole and back on rocky "path". Be careful. Wear good shoes not sandals with good traction. Don't get too close to blowhole itself. Nice view. We kept going on that road around the north shore and that was a mistake, very scary drive--the car rental company map showed it as a red zone, not to be driven. Oops.

This was really neat to see. Our kids had a blast standing a few yards behind the blowhole and catching the seaspray. We did stumble just a bit on the hike down and we were wearing sandals.
