The Road to Hana-Waianapanapa Blowhole

Waianapanapa Blowhole, Maui

Waianapanapa Blowhole, Maui

All of the Hawaiian Islands are entirely made from lava and this is a substance which is conducive to the structure of blowholes. Not only is it readily eroded by sea waves, but it often contains lava tubes. Lava tubes are natural conduits that support the underground flow of lava, and their remnants make for great blowholes.

This blowhole is in the Waianapanapa State Park just before the town of Hana, and it can put on a great display in the right conditions.

Tomorrow will finish our tour of the road to Hana with a wonderful Black Sand Beach.
