Although this viewpoint has limited parking, if you have the opportunity to get one and park, the view is truly breathtaking. Our next trip to Maui, we plan to try and get a spot around the same time as the sunsets. Also a fantastic view...More

As we were heading to the airport, we saw something in the water and were lucky enough to be able to turn into this scenic lookout. There were interns there from the Pacific Whale Foundation and they were able to verify that what we were...More

During our 2 week stay on Maui, we were at the lookout almost everyday. In fact we purchased 2 folding chairs on our 2nd day and took full advantage of the lookout by using them while we did our whale watching from shore. A great...More

Definitely gets busy around sunset, as it's a great place to get some amazing pictures! The boats are nearby so it's a quaint area

Since this is a heavily traveled road to get to/from Lahaina, expect that there will be a number of tourists her. I had found my perfect camera shot, when several people bursted into the scene. Well, guess what? I took the picture anyway, and it...More

This one of the must stops in Lahaina. In Papawai Scenic Lookout you will have a very nice view of the ocean and Islands around. If you are lucky you may have a chance to watch whales moving around.

A panoramic view of about 180 degrees to see the sunset. Breathtakingly amazing. Don't miss sunset at this location! A different location everyday but this is the best.

We wished we could have stopped, but all the parking was occupied pretty much all day and night. Looked like a lot of camping going on as well.
