  • Though the blowhole is visible from the hill above, bring comfortable shoes to walk down close to the blowhole to get the full effect. As a bonus, if you face back up the hill and look to your left, t...  more »
  • We took a drive along the highway for something to do as it had been raining. There's a lookout parking stop on the route so we took the short hike to the top of the cliff and looked down. Sure enough...  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.
  • Very cool spot. Rocks are super sharp so be careful walking on them. Around the blowhole is wet and can be pretty slippery and dangerous but it's amazing to see.
  • 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.
  • Just awesome. Quintessential Hawaii. Very dangerous up close - keep your distance & appreciate the power of the Pacific from at least a hundred yards.
