Kihei and Maui Travel Videos
Charlie Young Beach
Here is the closest beach to our condo (300 yards) and the nicest in Kihei! Charlie Young Beach (aka Kamaole 1 Beach) has nice Gentle waves, sandy bottom, crystal clear and warm water!
Cove park is less then a 300 yards from our condo complex and is the location of the best surfing opportunities in Kihei. Surf lessons are offered daily here.
There are great views of Haleakala volcano from our condo but to see it in all it's glory, a journey to the top of this 10,023 feet (3,055 m) and look down into the massive crater is an unforgettable experience.
La Perouse Bay
Cape Kinau (Kina'u) at La Perouse Bay was formed around 200 years ago by the most recent lava flow from Haleakala volcano. It is a protected area of A-a lava rock that supports almost no plant life.
One of the most famous hikes on Maui, Pipiwai Trail near Hana is a 2 mile trail that follows the Oheo Gulch ('Ohe'o Gulch) starting at the Seven Sacred Pools and ending at the 400 foot Waimoku Falls.
Kiteboarding, surfing, whales and simply big waves is what you'll usually see during the winter months off of the world renowned Hookipa Beach on the north shore of Maui.
The Nakalele Blowhole (Northwest Maui) can be quite an experience to watch this jet of sea water be forced upwards. The tide and weather conditions play a big part in determining how dramatic the effect will be.
Big Wave Surfing
Here is Jaws on the north shore of Maui - home to Hawaii's largest surf-able waves that are known to reach heights of 75+ft during the big winter storms. Highly recommended wave watching experience if you are here during a large north swell.
The road to Hana is long, curvy, lush and tropical. Here's a sample of the north road with the video sped up.
Hang Gliding in Hana
One of the most thrilling ways to explore Hana is from a powered hang glider - the "no windows" experience. You're sure to be rewarded with amazing views of the famous Waimoku Falls, 'Ohe'o Gulch black and red sand beaches and Hana's rugged coast line.
Green Sea Turtles
Green sea turtles, although endangered, are a very common site in Maui. Look for them along rocky shorelines at the ends of sandy beaches where they will be eating seaweed off the lava rocks.
Venus pool is a beautiful creek fed pool of water at the ocean's edge. It is a popular swimming destination and is about a 5 minute walk from the road. Look for mile marker 48. The water is slightly brackish due to the proximity of the Ocean.
