Went to this spot today and was awesome! Had a great time with climbing down and going to the cover for some private beach access. Not crouded and it has a great view!

It'll take you literally 15-20 mins to complete the experience of this place, unless you are crazy enough to go down the beach. We saw a lady actually swimming on the small bit of beach on the left side! Not recommended with signs everywhere but you know how it goes.

The display of blowback water in this lava tube depends on the tide. However, the whole coastline area is ruggedly beautiful and there is a safe lookout which affords a good view.

Stopped here on our way around the island. Get a nice little show if the wave action is right. There is a cool little beach opposite the parking lot for the blow hole. Parking can quickly become an issue. We also were excited to see a seal there sunning itself, until we returned a few days later and realized it... More

I thought the blowhole was pretty cool as I've never seen one before. It's definitely not a destination, but on your way to something else it's worth making a quick stop here.

We happened to stop by when there was a surf advisory along the east coast and we got to enjoy some fantastic blows. I can imagine it wouldn't be quite as impressive when the waves are smaller. I wouldn't make a special trip to visit here but if you are going by and the wind is out of the east... More

Located just down the road from the far more impressive Lanai’i Lookout, the Halona Blowhole parking lot looks out over some rocky scenery, with the added attraction of a blowhole – basically a small weakness in one of the rocks which allows water and pressure to build up until it eventually expels it all in a couple of jets.

Someone really needs to point out the blowhole to you or otherwise you'll miss it and feel like a fool. Once you spot it, take some video of it then take lots of pictures of all the area.

Take a drive all around the East (Windward) side of Oahu, this is one of many quick stops for a great photo opp.

You can catch the local bus #23 to get there. You will need to walk about 20 minutes but you go past Sandy Beach which is worth looking at too. At Sandy Beach there are toilets and some simple drink food choices also. We found it easy to get photos of the blow hole in action. It was quite windy... More
