  • The Sea Arch is located at the end of the Chain of Craters Road. The views are beautiful along the drive. You can see the steam where the lava is flowing into the sea, but it is a long, hot 8 mile rou...  more »
  • The road down to the arches is amazingly picturesque. Stop often along the crater trail to view glimpses where lava meets ocean. The jumping off point for a 10 mile rt hike to get up close and persona...  more »
  • It's hard to imagine what forces of nature created this particular arch. The crashing waves against the lava make for a pretty spectacular sight.

  • 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.
