Spitting Cave - Review

Although it is a pain to find, it is a tourist spot that tourists themselves recommend and swear by. The unique formation is a definite must-visit while in Honolulu. A tiny steep trail leads you down to a beautiful creek where the roaring waters are a real sight to be beheld.

The spitting part is just the water and the mist of the water that thrashes against the rock, drenching each traveler in the lovely water on a summer day. It is certainly a very refreshing spot to visit while in Honolulu.

There is a marked trail which is quite hard to find and it is rather steep but it is certainly worth the effort. You will find this hidden treasure in Kokohead and in the neighbourhood of Portlock. If you are an off-the beaten track sort of a traveler, you should certainly explore this attraction.

Spitting Cave, Honolulu Reviews

  • Gorgeous location. The ocean seems so vast and blue from this point and the action from the spitting cave is fun. I almost proposed to my now fiance at this location but there were some kids cliff jumping into the outlet of the spitting cave and that ruined the mood but luckily Hawaii has a lot of beautiful places to propose.

  • Beautiful scenery.. I suggest people visit this place during sunset. Docked one star because it difficult to access this place. The entrance itself is hidden from naked eyes. I am really thankful to our Uber driver to drop us right at the mouth of it.

  • Awesome little hidden spot to see in Hawaii. Waves are amazing hitting the rocks. Beautiful views. It is a little bet dangerous for older people or younger kids to see, the entrance is pretty much hidden between two houses, parking is on the street and you have to climb down some steep rocks (there is some help with some ropes attached). Its not hard to make it down but I personally would not recommend for family's with younger kids or older people. Its a great place to relax and watch the sunset or waves. During the time we went there was only a few groups of people there (10-15 people) so it is not a commercialized or advertised spot. The drive is pretty through the neighbourhood is pretty nice as well, there is some streets with amazing homes or mansions just being built over the ocean, architecture is amazing. Well worth to see it even though we got lost trying to find it.

  • Amazing view of the ocean, and the cave shooting water out is fun to watch. Very dangerous if you decide to explore. Steep cliffs and it's about 40' to the very rough waves.

  • Amazing place. Loved it! If you are going there for the first time, ask a local or your Uber/Lyft driver to drop you at the exact point. The entry to the caves is a narrow path which looks dangerous. Look through pictures to match the starting point for the cave. It's just 3-4 mins hike, bit slippery and risky so climb cautiously. But it's really worth the effort, beautiful and serene. The only noise you will hear is the sound of waves. I couldn't get enough of it and ended up staying till the sun set. When we went there, few photo shoots were going on and we had a chance to look at the photos, they were super amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PLACE TO VISIT!!!
