We left at 8:00 am for Honolua Bay on the west coast. After a few hours we were off to Kahekili Beach, with a quick stop at Slaughterhouse beach for some photos. On the drive back we stopped at a few beaches to view and take some pictures.
Honolua Bay is located on the north west coast. We parked on the side of the highway and hiked through the forest to the beach. Cameron was amazed at dense the forest was. We did some good snorkeling in crystal clear water before hiking back to the car. Slide Show
Mokelui beach(also known as Slaughterhouse Beach because it was close to an old slaughterhouse) is just south of Honolua Bay. you need to walk down a couple flights of stairs to reach the beach. this is a pretty beach but usually the current is strong and not good for kids. Cameron and I took pictures and hiked back up the stairs Slide Show
Kahekili Beach Park
Kahekili Beach (also known as Old Airport beach) is a great all around beach for everyone. It is just north off the popular Ka'anapali Beach but with out all of the people and better snorkeling. Cameron, Jan and I all went snorkeling here. The water was calm with tons of fish. Slide Show
Hanakoa'ao Beach is south of Ka'anapali . The beach offers canoeing, surfing, and swimming. We saw hang gliders and people paddle boarding. Slide Show
Puamana / Luanapoko Beach Parks
Puamana and Luanapoko beaches are just south of Lahaina. the parks are used mostly by locals and surfers. This is one of the best areas on the island for surfing. we just stopped to view and take some photos. Slide Show
Cameron and Jan had the shopping bug so we went to the Kalama mall in downtown Kihei.
