Lonely Planet review

There’s no better place on Maui for kayaking and, when seas are calm, snorkeling is good along the rocks at the south side of Makena Landing , the boat launch that’s the center of the action. Makena Bay is also a good place for shore dives; divers should head to the north side of the bay.

Kayak-rental companies deliver kayaks to Makena Landing – you can either head off on your own or join a tour. Although the norm is to make arrangements in advance , if there’s an extra kayak on the trailer, you might be able to arrange something on the spot. Paddle south along the lava coastline to Maluʻaka Beach , where green sea turtles abound.
