THIS WAS A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN....
Maybe about an hour or 2 who knows to the drive, we are all yelling at the car in front to us for about 30min, for this car to drive faster HAHAHA. We were all distracted that we missed the landmark. The road was starting to turn into a one lane EEEEEK. Liz, told us it was before the lane become one. We stopped by a YELLOW BUS that was selling mango smoothie, pineapple smoothie, and of course shaved ice.
I asked the lady where the blow hole is, she said it was 38 marks back EEEEEEEEEEEK. Yes we did miss it HAHAHAHA. it was the place where all the boulders and stacks of rocks that I said to the girls “HEY THAT IS ALL THE ROCK STACKING THAT I WAS TELLING YOU GUYS WE SHOULD DO!!!”
We doubled back as soon as we took a few photos of the fabulous view from the top.
After that tough ordeal, all the other cars paved the road to us to drive thru with no problem. THANKED GOD. Off we go to the blow hole. OMG THE BLOW HOLE BETTER BE WORTH IT!!!! HAHAHAHA. we were all careful this time and not miss it.
We got paranoid. There was another marked land mark. I told A to pull over and I will jump out and ask these random tourists as well where the blow hole is.
Kahakuloa is an area on the North side of West Maui, Hawaii. It is home to the isolated community of Kahakuloa Village, Aina Anuhea Tropical Gardens and a few small businesses.
It is accessible via Kahekili Highway (State Highway 30).
Traveling along the West Coast is one of the most scenic drives on the island.
This community is one of the most isolated spots on Maui and most of the residents work in and around the village. Aina Anuhea Tropical Gardens, Kaukini Gallery and Bruce Turnbull Studio and Sculpture Garden are a few examples of local businesses.
Leaving the village is pullout with a terrific view of the village and bay. Just as the road widens past the village is another wonderful vantage site located between Kahakuloa Head, a 636-foot high hill beside the ocean, and Ku'u Kahuli'anapa, a 547-foot hill to its right.
Wonderful views of the village and ocean before and after the village
No gas stations or restaurants located in the village
Road is VERY NARROW for 1 ½ leading into and out of the village - be very cautious and drive slowly!
Take Highway 30 around the west end of Maui from Kapalua.
EEEEEEEEEEK WE ALMOST FELL OFF THE CLIFF!!!!
