Halona Blowhole, Oahu

#8 of 40 in Nature in Oahu
At Halona Blowhole, watch the sea water shooting up to 9 m (30 ft) into the air from a molten underwater lava tube. Created thousands of years ago and surrounded by steep, sharp and slippery sea cliffs, the blowhole is one of Oahu's natural wonders and a must-stop scenic spot on southeastern shore of the island. The blowhole is best observed from the safe distance of the lookout point when the waves are high.
