Baldwin is a nice beach.
If it is turtle season take a peak at the eastern end of Ho'okipa.
I like Baldwin cove - quiet, although no facilities. This is where I find myself on each of my return visits.
When are you visiting?
I have to ask the obvious: If you’re planning on spending much time at the beach, why are you staying in Haiku? Even on a good day, the nearby beaches just aren’t very good. If they were on the South or West Side, only surfers would go to them...and maybe tourists looking to take selfies with beached honu.
Turtles are not seasonal, AFAIK.
Turtles present, turtles in season.
No turtles today, must be out of season. ;-)
We arrive on Thursday next week. I should have clarified that we spend a week with 4 nights in Haiku and 3 nights in Lahaina. Our trip was pretty last minute so most places were sold out and we thought we could use Haiku to access spots to Hana.
I will look up Baldwin in the interim.
Thanks in advance!
Be prepared for WET conditions in Haiku. It's been very, very wet there steadily for weeks. Some of my friends have to use 4 WD to get in and out of their driveways-and some can't even do that, they have too hike it.
Remember that pretty much everything will close early on Christmas Eve (I think you'll see be Haiku side?). If you want to eat out that night you need to try and get reservations now.
