A wonderful place to browse vendor wares while you stroll to the main attraction, a blow hole known as the Spouting Horn. It is at the end of the road yet just minutes from Koloa Town. The souvenirs have a local cultural flare and most are moderately priced. You will always see chickens and many times a mamma with her... More

This was only about a mile and a half away from our hotel at the Sheraton. Definitely worth spending a few minutes. Check out the attached photo.

It wasn't very busy when we got there, so we had a good view standing at the fence. It didn't take too long to watch the spout "go". You can almost time when it will happen, by watching the waves come in.

See the water spray up! Also see turtles swimming and whales breaching. Limited parking as this is a major attraction.

This was worth seeing since we were staying in the area. I would not make the drive if you are staying in Princeville.

Spouting horn never fails to delight site seekers. The open air market has lots of jewelry and souveniers. Fun stop, but no food or beverages.

This was such a beautiful spot to stop and enjoy a natural wonder! You don't need to stay for long but it is worth stopping for! Relax and just watch it! Every time will be different! We saw a little sea turtle near the rough waters! It was beautiful!

Great stop for the whole family. As waves come in the horn spouts water - the bigger the wave the bigger the spout! Gorgeous location. Vendors on the walkway so you can even shop!

Spout height/volume varies from day to day, depending on the ocean conditions. When the conditions are right, it can spout to mammoth proportions! It's easy to access, close to Poipu with lots of parking. There are a group of vendors with jewelry, and other souvenirs. We have always found something to buy there! There are restrooms, also. Great spot for... More

We did see some water shoot up kind of high, but didn't hear any sounds from it. We heard another visitor comment it was too bad the ocean was so calm that day, because apparently we weren't seeing much. We did enjoy the scenery and just had a quick visit.
