  • Lovely drive along the way. Several choices for observation. You can go all the way down or part way. Majestic, massive waves come crashing through. Wear good shoes and it can be windy.  more »
  • We make a point of visiting each time we go to Maui and it never gets old. It is about .33 mile walk in from the road and is very cool scenery around it (moon scape would be fitting). If you don't or ...  more »
  • Stay high on the mountain above, and watch this natural wonder blow water up, even the mist after is gorgeous. The views Right and left are beautiful too.  more »

  • The most scenic and picturesque place we visited in Maui. I had read about the heart shaped rock and the blowhole prior to arriving at Maui. When we got to our hotel we spoke with a staff member who told us the heart shaped rock was very difficult to find and that it had further eroded and no longer looked like a heart. None of that was true at all. The rock is still very much heart shaped. To find it you have to climb all of the way down to the blowhole. The heart shaped rock is to the far right of the blowhole. The blowhole was equally awe inspiring. You have to be in decent physical shape to get down there, if you're able to then you should definitely try. Just be careful because it is slippery once you are all the way down to the blowhole. I fell once when I got down there, hit the rocks hard. It was really my own fault. I can't say enough about how beautiful it was. When we got back to the hotel I tried to find the staff member to show her the pictures so she would not try and dissuade others to go looking for it, but we never saw her again.
  • Great place to visit on the North shore in Maui. It is a pretty easy trail to walk down, but make sure that you don't get too close to the blowhole. There is much further back to walk to see another blowhole, pools, and great shoreline. Take a walking stick if you are not too sure on your feet. You can find the blowhole right off the road with a small dirt/gravel pull off. They often have locals selling water, coconut, etc.
  • Great place to stop for families and adventures. There's a pretty steep downhill climb on rocks and gravel/dirt to get down, so would only recommend going down if you feel comfortable as it would be easy to take a tumble or twist your ankle for elderly or less experienced hikers. There's a cute "heart" rock at the bottom that makes for a great picture. And of course there's the blowhole, which can been seen from afar even if you don't hike down. If you do choose to make the hike down, it's a beautiful show.
  • This is a must see. Very cool. You don't have to hike down to see it. Just walk out on one of the ridges. It is a fairly strenuous hike if you want to get closer, especially back up. But the scenery is awesome. Big waves crashing on the rocks and deep blue beautiful water. You will get wet if you approach the blow hole. There are warnings about getting pulled in by waves so be careful.
  • I've seen many blowholes but this is by far the greatest. We just had the perfect tide and swell to see the blowhole in its full beauty. Definitely walk down and stand next to the blowhole. That gives you great photo opportunities and a great experience
