Dragon`s Teeth

Dragon`s Teeth

This unique area on the west side of Maui resembles something from another planet. An example of the amazing ancient volcanic forces at work, the area was aptly named Dragon`s Teeth because the rock structures look like large, terrifyingly jagged teeth. Located in Kapalua adjacent to the Ritz Carlton Hotel and sprawling golf course, Dragon`s Teeth is a sacred spot that was an ancient burial ground. Visitors are asked to respect the area while enjoying the natural beauty.

Olivine Pools

Olivine Pools

The Olivine Pools, located along northwestern Maui`s rugged coastline, offer large tidepools of clear water perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing on a calm day. Named after a gem found embedded in the area`s lava and sandstone, the pools are created by a naturally-formed lava shelf and the clear water looks green because of the color of the rock below it. Brightly-colored tropical fish can often be seen in the pools.

Nakalele Point and Blowhole

Nakalele Point and Blowhole

Located at the rugged northwestern tip of Maui, Nakalele Point offers stunning views along the coastline cliffs, a light beacon, potential whale spotting, a trail along the lava fields, and a blowhole that, when active, spouts a fountain of ocean water over 100 feet into the air. Warnings: Don`t approach the blowhole to avoid getting sucked into the hole.
