Attractions on Kauai
Spouting Horn is Kauai’s version of Old Faithful: the ocean has worked a small tunnel into lava rocks at this location on the coast, leaving a narrow opening that shoots jets of water up to 50 feet in the air! This amazing sight can be witnessed at any time of day, with especially strong bursts happening during high tide. Sunset is also a notably good time to visit – the colored sky makes for an amazing backdrop for the spray.

As one of Hawaii’s most-photographed locations, it’s only fitting that Kauai’s Spouting Horn has a park and lookout point of its own that visitors can enjoy the view from. From around November through May, this also makes an excellent place for whale watching. Getting there from our Poipu accommodations is easy – just take a left on Lawai shortly after Puuholo Road, and look for parking spaces after about a mile and a half.

While the overlook provides a nice vantage point for pictures, please don’t venture past the fence: the surf and rocky coastline make this area more dangerous than it looks. With that bit of safety in mind, you can fit a stop at this landmark into just about any trip down the coast or other day of activities on Kauai.
