This was one of my favorite places on Maui (and it's free!). It was like nothing I'd ever seen before, walking around the lava formation felt like I could have been on another planet. Also make sure to walk up to the top of the small hill to see the grass labyrinth. The parking lot is small, so it probably... More

This attraction is reached from the East end of Office Road where there is a small parking lot. The walk to the "Teeth" is alongside the golf course and easily reached after a few hundred yards. There is a great maze for the children to run around (made od stones) and the lava forms are swept up and awesome. A... More

This is a pretty short walk from the Ritz Carlton that should not be missed. Depending on the ocean that day, you could have some pretty amazing waves crashing over the rocks. Definitely a good photo opportunity here.

This is worth seeing if know how to find it, we missed it at first and ended up hiking all around before we realized where it was. Park near the Church at the end of Office Rd and walk towards the golf course and walk on the left side of the short hedges, that will lead you down the edge... More

Parking is a bit of a challenge, but once you find a spot you walk down past the golf course, and the burial ground, and walk into the area with the dragon's teeth. A lot of people in the area were reluctant to walk by the golf course and they turned around. The gold course has actually painted lines on... More

Beautiful views and rock formations to explore! If you venture down toward the water along the rocky cliffs you'll also get to see urchins and sea anemones! If you're in Kapalua, it's a must see!

Use Google Maps to find Dragon's Teeth Access Trail, & then find your way there to the parking lot at the head of the trail. Don't get discouraged and leave- it's totally worth finding! After you've parked, walk along the grass trail- it's clearly marked to keep you off the golf course. Peek over at the ancient burial ground to... More

The "teeth" are formed from when the ocean waves pushed back the flowing lava creating "licks" of lava rock rising vertically. It's scientifically cool and interesting, but when I went in early June 2015 it seemed like a lot of the teeth have broken over time so it didnt look as dramatic and cool as seen in photos. 5-10minutes from...

Worth the hike if you are in the area. Would not go out of the way for. Lots of other areas like it in maui.

I use Google maps and the map on tripadvisor to try to find the place but I didn't find it... There's some maps along the Ritz-Carlton pathway, I'm sure you can use them better than me.
