  • Is located at the end of Chain of craters road. Easy access, 5' walk from the parking lot. Very well stated.

  • After a very beautiful curvy road the Holei Sea Arch will not disappoint. From so many attractions from the National Park, this one is my favorite. 
  • The waves were huge due to high winds, very cool to watch. You can actually feel the ground trembling as waves hit.

  • This is a must see and is the end of a spectacular drive down from the mountain to the coast. This acts as the start of the hike to the active lava flow. Though it is recommended to hike from Kalapana. The view of the cliffs are also amazing.
  • Visit quickly and leave immediately. There are way to many people. If you want to see a cooler sea arch with zero people around hike the Kau Desert Trail and circle around to Ka'aha, there is an amazing one on the coast
  • The arch is neat but not worth driving down the road if that's all you're going to see. It looks like the pictures.
  • This active lava area is unique and always changing. Live flows are just a few miles away (see hvo.gov for lava location info). Holei sea arch is just one of the attractions here at the end of chain of craters road. You can walk to Kalapana if you really want the full tour! A new emergency access gravel road is yours for the traversing!
  • The drive here is amazing. Dramatic landscape. The arch is somehow still standing after getting pounded everyday by an angry sea. Wind seems to blow consistent all the time. Small shack on site with drinks, snacks, and postcards.
