Honolua Bay

Located on Maui's northwestern coast just five minutes past Kapalua, Honolua Bay is one of the island's most loved and legendary spots. Honolua Bay is part of a Marine Life Conservation District, so there is no fishing (or taking of any natural resources, including marine life and even rocks.) Summer is a time when snorkelers flock to the turquoise cove to listen to whales and watch underwater creatures come alive and dance along the coral beds. During the Winter months, I would recommend parking along the cliffs to catch a sunset and watch the local surfers catch barrels and put on a show like no other. 

  • No sandy beach
  • Lush jungle trail leading to the water
  • Excellent snorkeling, stand-up paddling, and surfing
  • Great sunset views and possible whale watching
  • abundant coral and tropical fish
  • No public restrooms
  • No lifeguards
  • Street Parking
