We arrived early in the morning and had the beautiful area on our own. The rocks make you feel like your walking on the moon! Totally worth the short hike down!

This was pretty cool to see. You can view the blowhole from up top, just a short walk from where you park, or you can climb down the rocks to get a better view. The rocky and sometimes muddy path can be a bit challenging...More

I got a little hesitant to view the blowhole after some of the talks of the difficult and dangerous hike down. To start with, if you are staying in west Maui the drive is pretty short and beautiful. The road is safe and the views...More

Long hike down and up so wear good shoes not flip flops. Lots of loose rocks. We used Google maps to find the start of the trail as there is no signage. No designated trail just a random scramble up and down the slope. Blow...More

The blowhole is worth the trip on the winding, narrow cliff side road. But be warned there are several places that are one lane and someone has to back up to a wider spot to allow cars to pass. Traffics can back up and backing...More

We drove over to this though we didn’t make the trek down the hill to get close. It was still an awesome sight to see. Every once in a while it would do a decent blow- compared to the one on Oahu it is not...More

I gave this a three because there was no water coming from the blowhole...tide was out BUT it is a beautiful location. A easy walk down and strenuous walk back. Got a nice picture of a heart shape in a rock overlooking the ocean.

The drive here was beautiful, but a bit scary. The hike down to the blowhole was a little challenging but not too hard, just take it slow. The blowhole was cool and the views of the ocean were amazing. The views everywhere here were awesome....More

We found this spot because I was searching for the hear rock - famously pictured everywhere, I thought this would be a huge cliff with the heart cut through it. We stopped here because it was a great view of the coast in both directions...More

I thought so. If was fun to go to a very different looking part of the island and see something very unique.

It’s not a difficult trail, however, it is rocky with a couple of big steps, depending on your route down. Take your time going down and you will be fine. It is muddy and slippery if raining.
