  • It was a bit of a drive and at times we almost turned around. Don't expect an official sign. What we found instead was a local vendor selling sweets; above him was a handmade side saying "Blowhole" Ha...  more »

  • Lots of costal areas boast "blowholes" But the Nakalele blowhole is truly amazing. It is a bit scary how close you can actually get to the hole. When it blows, it feels like Old Faithful - but salty! ...  more »

  • Great place for a quick stop. You can walk a short distance and see the blowhole from afar, or spend 15-20 minutes hiking in to experience it up close. Caution should be exercised, as the coast can always be dangerous, so best to not take young children too close.
  • Sandals and flip-flops will have you wishing you wore sneakers or hiking shoes. Takes a little time but it's fun and mildly adventurous. The views are spectacular! Try to visit on windy days with good ocean swells as this will have the blowhole putting on a great show.
  • Beautiful site. Highly recommended! If you can make the trek as close to the blowhole as safely possible, you can get some awesome shots. Be careful climbing down!
  • Amazing views the entire way to the blowhole. Lava formations along with the crashing waves make this a must see. Sometimes you need to give it an hour or two if the tide/waves aren't hitting right. There are many other sites on this road you can do and come back if your timing wasn't right. Don't give up! Totally worth it!
  • Worth the drive and the short hike, a must see. The fresh coconut water at the top after our journey was delightful and refreshing.
