Baby Hike to the Blowhole
The north coast of west Maui is full of places to adventure! We parked off the side of Kahekili Highway 340, and we climbed around and stumbled down the lava rock and dirt path toward the water. There are a number of blowholes and tide pools in the area, but this is "the famous one". We had to wait for it...and wait for it. It was disappointing at first. Huge waves would wash in, and the only a small splash misted up from the hole. However, when no one expected it, or when someone just turned their gaze away, the blowhole would randomly spout a huge waterfall up toward the sky. It's worth waiting for...take a drink, a snack, and a friend and create your own climbing, waiting, and watching adventure!
