  • A must see on your trip here! The waves pounding the rocky shore while you look over the side gets your heart pounding just a little faster. Several people were also fishing from this location....brac...  more »
  • Some of the best sites are found by accident. We were visiting the petroglyphs and then heading to the lava flow when we discovered the sea arch. One car parked nearby so I walked over to see the ocea...  more »
  • This is an easy, quick stop from the Chain of Craters Rd. There is a dirt path with some small rock steps to get out to the edge. It's worth seeing. Don't how much longer it will be around.

  • 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.
