This beach was beautiful. However the waves are rough so watch your kids carefully. There is also a shrimp food truck by the parking lot. We took the bus but recommend you rent a car.

The blowhole was good and if your near it definitely stop for a look. The waves weren't that big the day we went but still saw the waves crash up

This is a nice spot to stop with lots of parking and lovely scenery. Water is so blue! We didn't notice the blowhole, in particular, but we also didn't stay too long. Love the lava rocks in this area, the coastline is beautiful.

The blowhole does blow but needs the tide, winds and such elements all in alignment. The blowhole itself is close to the edge so the wash covers some of the 'blowing'.

A simple roadside stop that is good at high tide. It's also fun seeing the people venture down to the little cove area and get battered by the pounding surf as they attempt water entry or exit.

This is a nice spot to take photos and stretch your legs. Hike down into the cove for some cool photos.

We stopped here briefly en route to Lanikai Beach. Although the spray from this blowhole was not as spectacular as some others Ive seen, it's still worth a look. I wouldn't make a special trip just to see it, but would definitely stop to see it while driving to see other destinations in the vicinity

One of the reasons I went to this location is that I'm a professional photographer and wanted to shoot some images of brides in wedding dresses at that location. I was not disappointed! The sunrise and sunsets at this location, mixed with the crashing waves and gorgeous rock formations made it a perfect place.

A beautiful stop worth seeing off the highway. Fascinating to view the power of the water pounding the rocky coastline. It keeps your attention as you wait for the water to give you the show on the blowhole. A great nature view to see. And don't forget to look at the lush mountain across the street.
