Makena Big Beach Makena Big Beach is located on the south shore of Maui at the very base of Haleakala.  We sat in the shade while we watched Humpback whales surface and breach in the beautiful blue green waters of the Pacific.
The West Maui Mountains as seen from Olowalu.  The fields in the foreground are planted in sugar cane. One of the safest and most beautiful places you can snorkel is located near Olowalu at mile marker 14. The water is warm, shalow, and calm. This is a good place for first time snorkelers. Please don't stand on the coral. The world's coral reefs are in trouble and need our TLC. Mahalo.   West Maui mountains near Olowalu
Iao Needle The Iao Needle located in the West Maui Mountains a short drive from Wailuku. The needle rises 1200 feet from the valley floor. The Wailuku river is seen cascading over the boulders here.
