Today’s travel was a trip through what is considered south central Maui. We drove to the end of the road to Makena State Park and the last lava flows on Maui in 1790.
Located in Makena (south of Wailea), Makena State Park comprises of 165 acres and is composed of two beaches and Puʻu Olai, a 360 feet tall dormant volcanic cinder cone in the center of the park. There are no water fountains, so bring some bottled water.
Makena Beach, also known as Oneloa Beach and Big Beach, measures 1.5 miles long and 100 feet wide.
We made our way back through the same route. As with every road on Mauri, they seem to all end in the middle of nowhere, and you must return the same way.
We rented a set of snorkel equipment in Kihei. But the end of the day in the water wars started to be rough and murky.
So instead, we got out the lawn chairs and sat on the beach to view the sunset.
