  • I am 43 years old and was wearing flats, yet I was able to carefully and slowly work my way down to see the blowhole up close. However, coming back up in my opinion was quite a bit of a work out. I wo...  more »

  • Great little hiking spot. There's a pretty good elevation change over some rough terrain, so wear appropriate footwear. Also follow the warning signs. People die here. My wife was 6 months pregnant when we went so we didn't hike very far down, but the views from the top were spectacular, and you can easily see the blowhole from pretty much where you park.
  • What an amazing place. The view at the top is great and once you make the trek down to the blowhole it will literally blow you away. When the waves hit just right it forces a massive amount of water through a hole in the rock shooting water up 20+ feet. Many times it will shoot lower but wait for a big one, it really is amazing.
  • Lots of parking. The hike down is pretty steep so don't go down if you are physically unable to. Great views of the coast and one of the last spots on West Maui that most car rentals will allow you to drive.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Carefully climb down fairly steep rocks and watch the blow hole go off frequently. Don't get too close for photos, it has a sucking force and has pulled people in. There is no getting out. Any wet ground is slippery ground, keep that in mind. If you go to the right, away from the blow hole, there is a rock that has a heart shaped hole in it. You can get right up close for a cute picture here.
  • Beautiful drive and hike. The road is paved and two lanes with guard rails to the blow hole and even past it some. If you look at a Google satellite view you can see the road eventually narrows and looks scary. We chose to not drive past the blow hole. Very rocky and muddy in some places so be sure to not wear sandals. We noticed a lot of glass shattered everywhere on the stop before the blow hole...the stop where the lighthouse is. Looks like people break into cars here so be careful.
