So if you’ve seen pictures of Hawaii’s heart-shaped rock and you were hoping to see it during your trip to Maui…
Well, unfortunately that is no longer possible!
The heart-shaped portion of the rock has been destroyed by nature and is now gone.
At some point in the recent past, part of the rock formation of the heart-shaped rock broke away.
Google reviews indicate that this may have happened in January 2020.
All that’s left is half of the heart-shaped rock!
I made a visit here on January 24, 2020 and this is what it looked like.
This just really goes to show that these natural creations may only be a limited time only kind of thing… so see these types of Maui sights (and Hawaii sights!) while you can!
The other half of the heart that’s remaining may disappear soon too!

Is it worth visiting the heart-broken heart of Hawaii?
The hike down to the (now gone) heart-shaped rock is still worth a visit.
The blowhole still exists! Basically it’s the same hike down to the blowhole and the heart-shaped rock.
There’s a short hike stepping over rocks to get down close to the blowhole and heart rock. You’ll see the blowhole as you’re facing the ocean, while you’ll see the half-heart more when you’re facing land. It’s also possible to see the blowhole from a distance up top without hiking all the way down.
See more about the hike to the blowhole.
And that’s a bit about the Nakalele heart-shaped rock that’s no more!
Plan out more of your West Maui adventures!
Drive time from Nakalele blowhole to Waihee Ridge Trail is around 1.5 hours. Recommended to drive from the south. See pictures from this hike.
HAPPY VISIT TO THE (PREVIOUSLY) HEART-SHAPED ROCK OF HAWAII!
