If the multiple signs telling you that this is private property doesn't make you turn around then the treatment you will receive from the locals should give you a clear sign that you are not welcome. Even though we received the "Blessings" of one of...More

Access is apparently through private land and should be avoided (and the pool itself is private from what I have read). One has to appreciate the seriousness of trespassing and the signage is not to be ignored! Verbal abuse, uncontrollable anger, rock throwing and gun...More

It looks as if there haven't been any reviews since our version of Maui Revealed was published (2008). Sounds like if you are sneaky or persuasive enough and come at the right time of day/week, you might be able to make it down there. We...More

Hi Sal, I haven't been there in years, and it was fantastic when I went, but that was over 20 years ago. I can tell you that there is only one way in, and one way out (unless you have a boat or helicopter). If I were you... More
