Experience the Spouting Horn blowhole, one of the most photographed spots on the island of Kauai. Depending on the tide and the surge, the water may spout as high as 50 feet into the air.
On the South Shore you can find the Spouting Horn. There's a small beach park with a great lookout where you can watch a blowhole spout a plume of thundering water into the air. This waterspout occurs whenever the waves are forced under the rocky shelf and up through a lava tube. The water sometimes hisses and roars. If the light is right, you may be able to catch a rainbow in the sea spray.
Access to Spouting Horn Park is easy with plenty of parking and the view from the lookout is especially good at sunset. There's also a trail down onto the lava shelf which is worth exploring. There are some great views of the rugged Poipu coastline and bay from there.
- Sturdy shoes if you're going to climb down to the lava
