Really interesting rock formation that's created a spouting effect when the waves crash into shore, hence the name. Pretty sunset view here as well!

This is a great lil tourist attraction!
Exactly what you would anticipate here. Something I am sure is more spectacular at higher tide or when the swells are stronger. However, there was plenty to see while I was there.
My daughter also loved watching the jet of water when it spouted. It looks like there were several other spots that may spout at other times, but it was fun and put a smile on my daughter, my parents, and my faces.
When it was getting ready to spout, you can see a precursor *steam like* spray that quickly turns into a true spout as water ejects into the atmosphere.
There are bathrooms, chickens, feral cats (with a sign not to feed the cats or chickens), and a number of tourist trap covered awning shops here. The shops had odd jewelry and trinkets. The bathrooms were kinda clean but were still public use cleanliness. Parking was easy and plentiful but beware showing up when several tour buses let out at the same time, I can imagine that would be a bit of a nightmare.
Definitely a fun quick site to see while on Kaua'i.

On Kauai’s South Shore you’ll find the spectacular Spouting Horn blowhole, one of the most photographed spots on Kauai. The Poipu surf channels into a natural lava tube here and releases a huge spout of water during large swells. You’ll also hear a hiss and a roar that is the basis of a Hawaiian legend.
Shop for great deals on you vacation keepsakes at the open air vendors located just next door.

If you've never seen a lava blowhole along the coast in Hawaii, then make this a quick detour during your time in Poipu Beach. Not usually as impressive as the blowhole on Maui's Kahekili Highway, how high and powerful the spout is depends on the tides and the weather. There's usually enough parking in the beach park lot, or you can pull safely off onto the shoulder nearby and walk back to the park. It's a short walk along a rubbly paved path with a guardrail out to the viewing point.

Very cool site to see! Also some nice gift vendors there for gifts for your friends and family at home. Only a 5 min drive from Poipu Beach and our property.Recommended for:Family Travelers

Moderately interesting spout where the pressure from the waves causes sea water to spray 20' in the air. If you are into that sort of thing, its worth the trip. I found it a little underwhelming.
