Nakalele Blowhole

In Hawaiian, Nakalele means "the leaning," but you'd better not do too much of that here. This landmass on Maui's northern tip is known for its spectacular seawater blowhole, which creates a mean undertow when it empties. Nevertheless, Nakalele Point's watery explosions, often 30 meters high (98 feet), deserve wide-eyed admiration—from a safe distance. You'll have to walk a 365-meter (1,198-foot) incline from the road to find it, so wear sensible shoes and go at high tide for the best show.
