Experience the power of the ocean at the Nakalele Blowhole Maui, located in Northwest Maui. This natural phenomenon consists of a hole in the rocks at the ocean’s edge that connects to an underground, partially submerged ocean cave. When the waves roll in, water is forced up through the hole, sending an impressively high spray of water into the air. When the waves are big, the blowhole has been known to send jets of water up to 50 feet in the air, creating a truly fantastic sight. Capture amazing photos and simply stand in awe at nature’s power at this top Maui attraction.
Experiencing This Natural Wonder
From the parking area, the viewing point for the Nakalele Blowhole is easily accessible. This viewing area will put you within a safe distance from the blowhole, while still providing excellent views and photo opportunities. This is the option recommended for those traveling with children and for those who do not want to cross rugged, steep terrain to access the blowhole.
