Nice short hike

Nice short hike from the parking area. Saw the rock formations and took a few pictures here. You end up walking next to a golf course and a Hawaiwan cemetery.

Wandered into this after trying to park for Kapaula Beach! Amazing structures and coastline especially during a tropical storm!

Easy hike with breath taking views!! The colors of the ocean are vivid and there are times I would've called it dragons breath by the delightful sea spray that engulfed us Tennis shoes are good, wouldn't recommend flip flops

If the wind is whipping up, that just adds more to the experience. The sight and sounds of the waves crashing on the amazing looking rocks adds... More

I came here in 2009 when it was more primitive to get here had to run across the golf course. Now there is a little trail Marked off. Great rock formations and worth the stop. Go to end off Office Road and short right to park.

This is a side trip off the Kapalua Coastal Trail. Follow the side of the golf course where the marker signs tell you not to cross - you're okay if you stall along the side of the markers out to the jetty. This is also next to an ancient Hawaiian burial ground that is sacred, surrounded by a hedge marking... More
