On our adventure down the Road to Hana, we stopped here at 6am to see the kiters but only saw surfers. On our way back ( 4pm), there was limited parking and tons of people still pouring in looking for spots. Lots of surfers, hydrosurfs,...More

This is a decent sized beach, a lot of wind surfers out on the waves and children playing in the surf. The best part was watching dozens and dozens of turtles come ashore! By the time we left, there were over 50, in the far...More

Facilities were a little dirty but the turtles on the beach were a spectacular sight! So glad our Temptation Tour to Hana offered to stop on our way back!

Parking & great views of the surf action. Not the biggest break but plenty of waves. Also at times sea turtles. Calm days & you can swim too.

We weren't here to swim, but to watch the surfers and see turtles. In the afternoon from about 4 o'clock they come ashore to sleep. A great experience! There was also a kind of local ranger who took care that people didn't get too close...More

We saw 70 turtles on the beach here. Amazing place to go to. The beach is great to watch surfers, kite boarders and just to see the turtles.

Nice beach, however I was there while it was raining. The surf was very big that day, and was fun to watch.

Fantastic spot to overlook Maui’s north shore surf haven. Two parts to this...First, the lookout above has a small parking lot, very busy...food trucks on site through the day. Can get to rocks below for great photos, but watch your step. Second, a Paved road...More

Stopped by park after a fabulous dinner at nearby Mama's - was busy but still able to find parking. Great views of the windsurfers and waves crashing on the rocks.
