Nakalele Blowhole

Nakalele Blowhole Professional Review and Guide

"Blowholes are created when the sea undercuts a lava cliff. If there is a crack or other opening in the overhanging rock shelf, when the surf crashes into the shore the water is forced up through the hole like a geyser. The height of the fountain varies with the tides and the size of the surf. It’s fun to go when the tide is coming in and watch the water shoot higher and higher.

There are several informal routes from the highway to the blowhole. The easiest way to reach it is to start down the orange-gated road over windswept, goat-mowed ground, wandering downhill and to the right (east) toward the Nakalele Point Light Station. Along the way you’ll see hundreds—maybe thousands—of cairns of stacked lava rocks."
