Today’s mission was to see something new-to-us. A bit of research (courtesy of Maui Revealed and Tripadvisor) and we found a few interesting places to check out. Our first stop was the Olowalu Petroglyphs. We weren’t exactly sure where we were going and ended up passing that up (we’ll try again).
Our next destination was the Dragon’s Teeth rock formation at the Kapalua golf course. Wow. We have, of course, been to the lava fields at La Perousse Bay. These were totally different and so cool!
Our plan was to explore the Kapalua Coastal Trail. We parked at the public parking near the Ritz-Carlton to be closest to Dragon’s Teeth (turn left on Office Road and park at the end by the t-intersection). Then walk towards the ocean (alongside the golf course). You will pass an ancient Hawaiian burial site (it is clearly marked, please stay clear).
Here are a few pictures for you! The drive is over an hour from Kihei, but if you’re up there anyway, check it out!
