Be respectful this may look like this is part of the golf course but not. Very sacred to the Hawaiian people. The lava that reached the ocean wave moved the lava up to form teeth. There are no safety guards so keep your kids close. Waves can sweep you away if to close to the edge.

Dragon's Teeth isn't an "attraction" that you pay for or is guided- its just an outstanding outcropping of lava that has been whipped by wind and water for years and is often quite breathtaking to see. Regardless of where you are staying on Maui it is worth the drive (well, maybe not if you're way over on Hana for a... More

This was an unexpected surprise on our trip. We were staying at the Ritz but didn't check out the Dragon's Teeth until our last day, but I'm glad we did. It's actually accessed from the Ritz property but, of course, anyone can go down there. It's really beautiful. A great spot for pics. Wear tennis shoes and just keep walking... More

This is a great spot for viewing the ocean and the lava flow. There are very few people (although the reviews will eventually make this place crowded.) Check out the tides before you go. High tide may be dangerous, but low tide was mellow. I would wear sturdy foot shoes.

Rock formations that actually look like dragon teeth. Right next to the Ritz-Carlton. Definitely not worth the trip if you're not already in the area. Way better things to see up the road.

It is a peaceful place to spend quality time with your family and enjoy the big waves. Nice climb from the Ritz hotel side

This is defiantly worth the visit. It takes very little effort to get here as there is public parking nearby and a short walk along a golf course with no elevation change. I have known people who stayed 5 min from here and did not know it was there and were amazed when I showed them pictures.

There are no signs that help you get there, but there are websites that can lead you there using your phone. It is in the same area as the Kapalua Golf course, so yes when you turn down a road that looks like you are in an exclusive rental area you are in the right place. There is a small... More

Awesome spot.. check out the lava formations and watch for turtles, dolphins and more! Walk up from DT Fleming and walk the path along the golf course to get out there.

nature has made some amazing things on this island and Dragon's Teeth is one. Short hike down - in the winter the waves pound. Be sure to walk all around as the views are amazing from all sides. Don't forget to walk the labyrinth. This is a very spiritual place.
