Parked at mile marker 38 and tried to walk down but there are paths winding all over the place with no indication of the correct way to go. Ended up really high up where it was hard to see too much. Not worth the time to wander around for an ok view. They should put some signage up to help show people the correct path! There’s another blowhole on the road to Hana that I thought was a lot better. If you see that one, this one definitely isn’t worth the hassle although the northern road to get to it is worth the drive.

To get the best of this experience it's best to walk down and get close enough but at a safe distance. Those hand painted warning signs along the trail is enough warning not to get to close for that selfie.

The road around the Northside of Maui was an exhilarating adventure. The views at the blowhole were spectacular.

This was a first visit to Nakalele Blowhole even though we've been coming to Maui every year for the past several years. Wow! It is worth the drive from the Lahaina area no matter which direction you opt to drive from. If you head around the north part of the island you have to be comfortable with curves as you will encounter plenty. The blowhole is located on the windward side of the island and if you get anywhere close to the blowhole you will experience what the wind does. The large waves crashing onshore play a big part in the show. Parking is right along Highway 30 and there is a short hike to get a view of the blowhole. However if you want to get up close then you will have to hike and scramble down boulders to get closer. Don't tempt fate and get too close and into the pool of water because you can get sucked in. There is a decent sized flat area to enjoy the waves crashing and the blowhole doing its thing. Here, you will get wet as it rains down on you as well as the heavy mist it leaves behind. It is a sight to enjoy and to capture it on video, especially in slo-mo is absolutely stunning. You will expend some energy hiking back up so be sure to where the proper foot wear.

The drive up the north side of the island from Kapalua is a bit daunting with tight lanes and sharp curves, but it was well worth it! We drove very slowly, took many pullovers to enjoy the views, and the Nakalele Blowhole was an amazing sight of natural beauty and the powerful ocean! Definitely wear proper walking/hiking shoes, as it is extremely rocky and can be slippery, and do NOT get too close, as you can see the beauty and feel the power of nature from a safe distance. We were also there when we were able to spot whales in the distance. Beautiful spot! (And a great spot to turn around and head back south!)
