Day 11: A Day of Bays & More Fires!

The northwest portion of Maui offers beautiful vistas, as well as opportunities for snorkeling, swimming, and surfing. On our way, we noticed another brush fire on Honoapiilani Highway near Olowalu.

We stopped at Honolulu Bay for some snorkeling, although it was not as clear and robust as Lana’i. After a little bit of snorkeling we headed further north to the Nakalele Point and Blowhole. Our hike out to the point was short but rugged; well worth the trip.

We headed south to find the Kapalua Coastal Trail for a 3+ mile hike along the rugged northwest coast. Below are some of the pictures from yesterday’s adventure.

On our way home to Kihei, the brush fire was still burning, even more area was burning and smoldering! It’s been dry in this area, and when the fires cross the highway, there is no other way to get in or out of West Maui!

We decided to have dinner out at Da Kitchen, a casual joint with traditional Hawaiian style grinds such as Kalua pork.

Tomorrow, it’s back to the Swap Meet and then to ‘Iao Valley.
