Spouting Horn, Poipu

(3.4/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
Local Hawaii legend speaks of Spouting Horn and its ocean blowhole on Kauai's south shore. Formed by a combination of volcanic lava rocks and erosion from crashing waves, the spout represents the home of a mythical and angry lizard. Waves funneled into the small opening in the rock shelf can blast as far as 15 m (50 ft) into the air from the mouth of the blowhole, spraying the surrounding area. You can take photos of the spout from the nearby viewpoint with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. Keep in mind that this force of nature can be dangerous; remain behind the guard rails and obey all posted signs. To visit Spouting Horn and get the most from your holiday in Poipu, create itinerary details personal to you using our Poipu trip itinerary planner.

  • Driving along the coast is a nice way to see the country side on Maui. Stopping by this park is a nice break. The ocean breeze is nice and to see the water forced up through the volcanic tunnels is co...  more »
