There is some beautiful scenery on the north end of Maui and the drive to the Blow Hole takes you right thru it. To get there drive to Mile Marker 38.5, not 38. There is plenty of free parking, but don't leave anything in your...More

Lovely drive along the way. Several choices for observation. You can go all the way down or part way. Majestic, massive waves come crashing through. Wear good shoes and it can be windy.

Stay high on the mountain above, and watch this natural wonder blow water up, even the mist after is gorgeous. The views Right and left are beautiful too.

Its a neat place to visit in Maui. You wanna take the main highway there though. We had taken the back road and it was scary! It's a little bit of a walk down to the blow out hole. So if you have really young...More

This is one of my favorite things we did on Maui. The blowhole was fascinating to watch and the crazy lava rock formations were really interesting. You can get a long-distance view of the blowhole from up on a bluff, but if you are physically...More

Yes. You can walk a short distance from your car and see the blowhole. Regardless put your toddler in closed toe shoes so he/she doesn't hurt his/her feet on the lava rock.
