This is an intriguing geographical spot where the ocean has undercut the lava and drilled a hole through to the top.

We had just visited Hanauma Bay and decided to drive to the Blowhole. It did not disappoint. We stopped for about 10 minutes and watched the water spout up multiple times. The views from this overlook are spectacular and worth the stop. You can take a lot of great photos here.

We travelled on the Blue Line trolley to get here and loved seeing the pristine beaches and the blow hole which erupted while we were there. We also got to see the beach where they filmed part of From Here to Eternity which was enjoyable. The rest of the trolley ride also takes in more of the Hawaiian coastline so... More

I'm probably spoilt by having the reliable and spectacular Kiama Blowhole nearby in Australia, but the Halona Blowhole is mediocre at best, and I was there during some poor weather and rough seas. Nevertheless, the views are spectacular, and watching the blue waves crash into the volcanic rocks was a treat. Definitely worth stopping in for a visit, but don't... More

The blowhole doesn't produce a huge sprout, but the lookout has some amazing views of the nearby beaches.

Pulled off the roadway to stop and look at Halona Blowhole. Was able to see it shoot water 15-20 feet into the air within 10 minutes of arriving. It was quite windy while we were there. Also has beautiful ocean views.

Some locals (old friends) took us on a whirlwind tour of Oahu's windward coast on a sunny Tuesday afternoon in October 2016, and one of the early stops was to see the Halona Blowhole in action. Parking was plentiful with easy in & out. Very scenic volcanic rock coastline, and an intriguing feature in the Blowhole. But on the day... More

This site offers something different, but you may have to elbow your way up to the fence for a view. Stick to the far left or far right -- or do both if it's not busy -- so you can clearly see the geyser-like action of the waves pushing water up through the blowhole. A good place to stretch your...

I am unsure what to think of this. It wasn't nearly as big as I expected but worth it to see if in the area.

Most travelers will be staying in Waikiki and so if you're looking to see the east side of the island chances are you'd be driving past the blowhole. Take a moment and take in the view. Even without the blowhole the views are great. And if you time your visit well (people say high tide, high wind, high swells are... More

We visited this area twice. The first time the blowhole had lots of action - shot water way into the air. Second time we went - nothing. If I hadn't seen it the day before, I would have walked away wondering what the big deal is. Nature never promises to deliver.
