Really impressive rock formations - just 5 minute hike from the Ritz in Kapalua. Fun for the kids - right on the ocean. The history of this place is worth learning also. Google it before you go - and help your party to respect and honor this place that is sacred to the native Hawaiians. Enjoy!

This is a very unusual and dramatic basalt lava structure. It is the front of a flow as it hit the spray of the ocean. Given some time and erosional impacts the result are large teeth like structures on the edge of the Ocean. It is one of those places where geology comes alive.

Very interesting!!! An important tip: if you go during a sunny day, be sure to have sunblock on your neck and all exposed body areas, because the black color of the rocks make something with the sun which helps to get horrible sun burn

Just a short walk from our hotel was the famous Dragon's Teeth, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was a beautiful view and easy hike.

Gorgeous area!! Well worth the hike~and bring your camera!! It's a very comfortable walk but wear good shoes as flip flops may prove slippery and dangerous.

We have gone to the Dragon's Teeth 3 out of our 4 times to Maui. It never gets old. We see something new here each time. Along the south side we always see fish along the edge of the water. Very scenic and a nice little hike.

Dragon's Teeth will take your breath away. It's about as close as you can get to walking on water and very scenic as well as peaceful. As others mentioned it is not a marked site but it's also not difficult to find. It is located along the Ritz Carlton property and is situated along a coastal route where you will... More

Like most scenic things on Maui, this one is not marked, but if you follow directions to the Ritz, you can find it easily. Park on Office Rd. There are a few parking spots. Walk across the street to the right and down along the side of the bushes on the golf course, you will see a small sign that... More

Though I noticed some reviews mentioned that this place is dangerous, it's a walk anyone can do; you just have to know not to go off the path toward the edges near the sea. The rocks can get slippery, and if you don't watch your feet, you can stumble, but there is no steep incline, and the path is clearly... More

Walking the labyrinth at Dragon's Teeth at sunset is pure enchantment and peace. Allow yourself some time to just be in the moment. Do the walk slowly and pause at the center for reflection on your time in Maui. On the walk out of the labyrinth, reflect on how you can bring your new awareness back to your life on... More
