“It didn't blow...”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

It didn't blow the day I was there. Pretty photos can be taken there, but no guarantee that you will get to see the blowhole in action. Ample parking for free.

“Have to hike down to the beach”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

While the blowhole is fun to watch for a little while if the waves are big enough, the real treasure is the beach below. The beach is very small but still not crowded. We were able to swim with and watch 4-5 sea turtles the whole time we were there. It would be a good place to snorkle and jump off the cliff rocks as well.

“Another pretty photo op if you're in the area”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The blowhole is impacted by the direction of the wind / volume of water. Saw a couple of big "spouts", but it didn't blow consistently.

But while you're waiting you have great views of the ocean and crashing waves (and might even be able to see three other islands to the south).

And if you're looking for the blowhole - see that post? If that is 12 o'clock, the blowhole is at about 4 o'clock.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Amazing views, blue water and pristine beaches. Blowhole can be elusive at times, would not make special trip, but stop if you are go by.

“Go for the beach!!!!!!!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

I just fell in LOVEEEEE with this place!!!

Not for the blowhole,(maybe the waves weren't big enough because we didn't see much coming out of it) but for the amazing beach!!! It was one of my favorite spots on Oahu. It's a small intimate beach with ALOT of waves, we had sooo much fun there! The beach is surrounded by big lava rocks, some people were jumping of of them even if it was pretty shallow in some spots. Located right a the back of the beach is a lava tube, which is pretty cool to check out! ....If you are visiting Oahu, you HAVE to check out this beautiful part of paradise!!!
