If in the Kapalua area, you must visit Dragon's Teeth for views. Breath-taking and interesting to see the ancient lava flow formations and rocks. There's a 1.75 mile trail you can walk, however, it's tricky in parts so not for those with any walking disabilities. Fun to watch the waves crash into the rocks/shore and look out towards Molikai Island.... More

I first visited this area in 2007. It is nice to see in that time this area remains much as it did there. The lava formations here are much different than other parts of Maui or the Big Island... these are much lighter and brighter than other locations and that alone makes it very unique. Parking isn't really that hard... More

Park next to the golf course on office. Walk next to the golf course, you'll see signs saying to sty off course. You just walk along the edge to the right and it takes you to the dragons teeth. Really cool spot.

Well worth a quick stop to check out, not sure I would drive all the way from Kiehi just to see the dragons teeth however if you are in the area have a look, a interesting stop. Total stop time including walk to the teeth shouldn't take more then a hour. Here is the place to park, enjoy. https://goo.gl/maps/3nk5G

When you make the turn into Kapalua just continue to the T in the road and turn right. There is parking there or around the corner to the left. There are two markers there (at the end of the parking area to the left) telling about the ancient burial sites. The path is right there just follow the golf course... More

Under some conditions, this is not a casual walk! You're walking on sharp lava - when wet, it can be slick. Wear good shoes, sandals are like begging for a nice foot injury! Navigation is a little tricky. You're threading the needle between an ancient, sacred burial place (DON'T ENTER) and a golf course (YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE). Outside... More

It's a little dicey to get to, I walked along an active fairway to get to it. Once you're on it, it's easy to navigate. There's some great spots, keep your eyes peeled for the circles of stone and grass with a weird shrine of burnt letters in the middle. Very cool.

Worth the time and effort to get to it on that side of the island. Be warned about unfriendly groundskeepers and a sacred site that you should not enter. There is this tiny strip of land (covered in grass) that runs between the sacred site and golf course that you must traverse to reach the Dragon's teeth. Lots of warning... More
