Explore one of Mauiโ€™s natural wonders, Nakalele Blowhole. Due to deteriorating shoreline below a lava shelf, where waves of water are shoved into a hole in the lava, create what looks like a geyser shooting up from the ground. Just under 10 miles from Kahana Sunset, the Nakalele Blowhole is found off Highway 30 in West Maui.
