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.

Great diversion from beaches and pools and if you like to take pictures, bring your camera. It's at the bottom of the Ritz Carlton and there isn't a 'real' trail. Hint, just don't cross into the golf course. It's an amazing formation, unlike anything I'd seen before. You can see where the lava has flowed to the ocean. We got... More

You have to really hunt this one down, at the edge of the Ritz Carlton golf course (the nerve!) but worth the effort. What a site! Nature at work, just amazing what the ocean does to lava! Ask staff for directions, search for the little signs, do not worry about walking through the golf course like I did!

Not much to add to the many other reviews: easy walk to a lovely view...but I would emphasize that, to me, it is not a destination. Rather, this is an excellent stop when you're in the area, for example, at DT Fleming park or one of the nearby resorts. If so, by all means, go see the amazing rock formations,... More

I wouldn't go only for this spot, but if you're going to visit the Nakalele Blowhole, this is a good place to stop on the way. It's an easy hike (the path is along a golf course).

Dragons Teeth is a prehistoric looking group of rocks that have the shape of teeth forming a large mouth of sorts. The formations are very interesting when you think through the process from which they were made. Once you climb up and through the entrance area, the plateau offers a nice view of the sunrise and if you watch closely,... More

Really good place to see the sunset. Make sure you stay on the trail, which can be challenging on the way back, since that is a bird nesting area. Go early enough and you can snorkel on the SW side before hand if you desire and if it is calm.
