On our last day on Maui, we decided to drive South. I had no idea the lava fields existed & I’m glad we stumbled across them. We spoke with a park ranger and he said the last eruption was 500 years ago. When you need...More

If you're going to commit to going on this hike....GO PAST THE BEACON!!! We saw so many turn back at the beacon. Don't do it. Go down and check out the surf and beach! It's an amazing view of the bay!

By car, follow a winding often unpaved road to where you see many vehicles parked and think that's the end, but just keep on going. An amazing sight to behold for sure. Our experience here was confined mainly to some picture taking as the wind...More

This nature attraction is located in south Maui. About 45min drive from the airport driving towards Waimea. I was trying to get more information about this area but there were only few so I was hesitant. But I'm glad we made the drive. Driving here...More

Definitely worth a visit, however there is not much to do there. It is easy to get to, it is near and it is cool. However, after about 5 minutes and few photos you can move on, I wouldn't go out my way to go...More
