T, U and V Photos
Twin Falls in Pe’ahi, about 10 miles past Pa’ia on the way to Hana, is located on private property that the owners allow visitors to visit. Photo #1 above is the actual Twin Falls that visitors seldom visit.
Photos #2 and #3 are two of the three waterfalls that are really the attraction on this property. There’s some hiking to get to all the falls, and it can get slippery if it is raining.
The three waterfalls that are most visited on this property have trails leading to them, but there are no signs indicating directions.
Ukumehame Beach between Ma’alaea and Olowalu is a little used beach, and it can get windy. Popular with surfers not wanting larger waves. Has porta potty.
Ulua Beach in Wailea is one of the more popular beaches south of Kihei. Has all facilities, but no lifeguard. Good all-around beach with good snorkeling along the rocks. Popular with beginning scuba divers. Limited parking.
There is a seven mile stretch of road beyond Kipahulu on the Road to Hana drive that is unpaved. Cars drive through here, but rental car companies would rather their customers not drive this road because of the pot holes and rocks.
The U. S. Coast Guard Station Ma’alaea monitors the waters, and aids boaters in distress, around Maui, Lana’i and Moloka’i. The next closest station is on the island of ‘Oahu.
This is the view from the Visitor Center at the near summit of Haleakala. It is from this location that visitors watch the sun rise from Haleakala. The parking lot at this location can reach capacity on some mornings.
