Makena Bay information
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.
