Secrets of Hawaii : Halona Blow Hole

      The Halona Blow Hole is a well known and often visited tourist spot on Oahu's south shore. Many of the circle island tours will make a stop at this site. What is not well know is that the Halona Blow Hole is not at its most majestic water spotting self on most days and the time given by these tours is often not enough to see the true power of the blow hole. This stop is best seen on a windy day at high tide. While on this side of the island you should also try and see Hanamuma Bay, Makapu'u Point Lighthouse, Koko Head Botanical Garden and Sandy Beach.
