While searching for things to do near Kihei, I stumbled across some reviews for the lava fields. I started reading the reviews and thought it sounded interesting and we should go check it out. Without really knowing what we were getting into, it turned out...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!

Where the road ends south of wailea. Drive seems like a mini pebble beach of Maui. Most of this area 2 percent is preserved for untouched ocean life. Landscape is lots of lava rock below lush hills. Odd looking area very unique. You can hike...More

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
