interesting walk if at Ritz-Carlton

Interesting little walk to volcanic area. Would have been nice to have interpretive signs so you could know more about how the formation was formed

After parking and taking the trail by the golf course we come to this lava formation that actually look like teeth. That was very nice but not the surprise. As we got closer to the ledge and look down there were lots of Green turtles of all sizes swimming leisurely in the waves. The view of the shore was fantastic.... More

This was a very cool place to visit. Not difficult to get to, and a bit of an odd location, between an upscale golf course (Kapalua) and an ancient Hawaiian burial site. Well worth the stop if you enjoy a beautiful natural landscape, and can let your imagination roam back to ancient times in that spot. I imagined the original... More

They have a small parking lot and a narrow grassy area between the no-go area for the sacred ground and the golf course. The rock formations are quite interesting.

If you are in the area of Kapualu on Maui, make time to stop and enjoy the neat lava formations at the ocean shores. Take Rt.30 north from Lahaina to Kapalua. Make a left at Kapalua Golf course-you will see a sign to make left to Office Rd. Go to bottom of road-left the road continues but to the right... More

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.
