Maui Quick Links
Honolua Bay is a beautiful protected bay with a rocky shoreline. There is no sand and not much shade at the beach, but the snorkeling is great when it hasn't rained (the creeks empty into the bay and muddy up the water). It's worth the trip just for the hike through an amazing tropical forest.
Honolua bay is located further north past all of the resorts. There will be a turnout where you can view the bay from above. Keep driving until you descend to sea level. Park anywhere along the road (you will see other cars) or a the dirt lot at further up the road. You will need to hike through a tropical forest to reach the rocky beach. The walk trough the forest is amazing. Take any trail as they all lead to the bay.
Take highway 30 ( turns into 340) about 9/10 of a mile past DT Fleming Beach.
park along the road or at the dirt parking lot and the north end of the forest..
Porta-Potties at dirt parking lot.
