Nakalele Blowhole Reviews & Ratings
The Nakalele blow hole is absolutely a must see for all tourists. It is totally free and a very light trek down a hill to see the water. There are signs throughout expressing that you remain safe. I would suggest listening to the signs to be safe, but there were several people getting fairly close without any repercussions. I would not roll the dice. You can get plenty close, while remaining on dry rocks. A side stop fairly near to the blow hole was the heart shaped rock that makes for beautiful pics. The heart shaped rock is a hole in a rock that is shaped similar to a heart. There is a cart at the top of the hill, near the start point that offers banana bread, leis, coconut water and watermelon for sale. I only priced the coconuts which were $10 for a whole coconut. After you're done drinking the water, the vendor would cut the coconut in half so you could eat the meat. Great excursion and the cheapest thing to do in Maui so far. The trip is somewhat daunting as there is a 5 mile stretch of a very windy, narrow two lane road leading out to the site.
Definitely something to see and experience. And don't forget to get some pictures by the heart rock. The drive isn't to bad at all, especially compared to South Hana Hwy. But do it clockwise from Lahaina. The climb down isn't too bad, but the climb up is harder. Wear good shoes or hiking boots, no sandals.
Great little hike off the road if you want to get closer to the Blowhole. I'd recommend shoes instead of sandals. Both adults and kids (ages 6 + 9) enjoyed it.
Great experience. Wear comfy shoes to hike down. I wouldn’t recommend sandals as I had them on and it was tricky even trying to go a quarter of the way down. Drive there was a little narrow and winding so be careful as there were bikers.
Pretty cool place! The blowhole was impressive, and the heart shaped rock was pretty neat. Pretty steep hike down, but we made it fine with 3 kids under 5 years old.
