    Very beautiful, nothing like it. Gorgeous views. Definitely wear good gym shoes for the hikes down. You must hike down and get close to the blowhole in order to really appreciate it and see the RAINBOWS that form when the water shoots up. Go on a sunny day for the rainbows.

    Heed the warnings and be careful if you venture close. In order for the blowhole to be impressive you need to have large swell in the correct direction with favorable tides. Check the swell report before deciding to visit, and please drive carefully to or from Kapalua.

    If the conditions are right however, expect bursts of water well over 30' high. Also check out the banana bread nearby, it's some of the best on the island!

    Fantastic rainbows! Heed the warnings and stay on dry rock. There are scenic points on the way down to the blow hole. A bit of a climb. Wear proper shoes and careful not to slip on sandy rocks.

    Really cool spot. Reminded me of the cliffs in Ireland. The blowhole is a little hike down. Slippery rocks so be careful. I would def recommend wearing shoes or hiking boots. Saw a couple in flip flops slip several times. Be ready to get wet if you are willing to get a little closer to the blowhole. Just as long as you don’t get too close which all the warning signs remind you. Worth the beautiful drive up west Maui.

    This is one of those sights where you have options. Either A. You can just walk the 100 ft from the lot to the cliff edge and see the blowhole from about a 1/4 mile or B. Take the easy hike down to the rocky cost edge and see the blow hole first hand while experiencing the martian looking landscape. I choose B with my spouse and she having very little hiking experience made the short trek with very little issue, only a few drops of sweat and another fantastic memory for us to cherish.
