Time high tide, and (if you're not afraid of heights) take the advice to walk the cliff top west of the blow hole. It starts right behind the shrine. Enjoy. Wished I could've seen it go!

Doesn't blow everytime wave comes in so be patient! Brief stop and it's free so why not stop? Good scenic overlook of the coastline. About 1 1/2 miles north of Hanamuma Bay .

We stopped off here for 5 min to see the views and blowhole. It was truly amazing. The pictures don't justify it. Well Worth stopping to have a look at.

What a beautiful place to stop and take some photos. The ocean water and its magnificent shades of blue are incredible. The blowhole is pretty cool, depending on the force of the waves the water really shoots out. I think making this stop is definitely worth it.

There are only 3 blowholes in the world. One in Mexico, Australia and this one. Beautiful site. Great views of the coast. Worth a roadside stop to enjoy the breeze and the watch the blowhole. Combine with a trip to Nuuanu Pali Lookout and other attractions on the East Side.

If you're on Oahu then you must stop by this attraction. You will get to see this blow hole along with stunning views of sunny beach off in the distance. Not far from Hanauma Bay

We went while there was a surf advisory, and the surf crashing on the rocks was so awesome! It was fun watching the blowhole explode. We went during sunset and it was perfect.

It's a must see stop when driving around the Island to see the Blowhole and the ocean looks amazing all along the coast line.
