There are two trailheads off Highway 30. One goes to the lighthouse and over a ridge down to the coast. The other trail is about 1/2 mile further up the road, just past MP 38.

Do not go all the way out to the blowhole. Watch it from a distance. People die here.

Really beautiful stop and not too bad of a hike. Definitely recommend shoes as we were in flip flops. Blow hole is pretty impressive as are the views down below. Look for the heart shaped cut out in the rock.

Jan, 9th 2017 Nice little hike with great views. You kind of have to make you own trail down to the blow hole over the rocks and slippery mud. Love the sign about being sucked in and Killed, and I do recommend staying a fair distance away from it.

Short trail that leads down to a great view of the coast, worth the drive if you are staying on the west side of the island

Walked down here back in 2008. The ocean was plenty wild that day and the waves were crashing against the rocks. The blowhole is like others I've seen in Hawaii. Has to be just the right kinda wave to make it really blow. Easy walk and worth going down to check out.

Definitely a must-see. There's not much of a trail; you just kind of have to find your way. A lot of tourists in flip flops... I don't think that's a good idea, but more than half were in them and I didn't see any broken toes.
