Maui Beach Sunset

Just another sunset in Hawaii… this was shot at an undisclosed location on the island of Maui, Hawaii (but feel free to take a guess). Let’s just say that this is my own secret beach. It was cloudy the entire afternoon, with the sun popping out for just enough time to take a few shots. […]

Kam 3 Beach

I recently went to one of my favorite beaches. I hadn’t been there in a while, almost a year, so it was great to get back. It’s Kamaole Beach Park 3, or Kam 3 for short. It’s right across the street from the vacation condo we used to stay in before we moved here. It’s […]

Secret Beach Video Guide

Music: “The Voyage Home” by Daniel Ho, from the album “Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar (The Complete Collection)” Secret Beach is one of the most photographed places on Maui, as well as one of the most popular places to get married. It’s not a swimming beach like nearby Big Beach. But it’s great for hanging out […]

Polo Beach

Here are a few photos from my scout of Polo Beach in Wailea. It’s an excellent beach park that has amenities, showers, and the best part – you can use the Fairmont Kea Lani’s beach chairs even if you’re not a guest! Also, take my advice and go exploring around this beach. Go for a […]

Wailea Beach Video Guide

If you had to categorize Wailea Beach, it would probably be called a ‘resort beach’ since it’s surrounded by the Four Seasons and Grand Wailea, with the Wailea Beach Marriot close by. And most of the beachgoers here are probably staying at one of those resorts. But that shouldn’t take away from the fact that […]

Cove Park Sunset

These are pictures of a brilliant sunset I saw at Cove Park in Central Kihei. Maui has some great sunsets, but this one was the best I’ve ever seen. It came at the end of a long, rainy day as me and a friend were on our way to Da Kitchen for some local grinds. […]

Palauea Beach Video Guide

Here’s a video guide to Palauea Beach (aka White Rock), my favorite beach on the entire island of Maui. It’s a superb spot for snorkeling, paddle boarding, and boogie boarding. There are lava outcroppings on both ends of the beach that are usually hopping with underwater life. I found the south end of the beach […]

Ulua Beach Video Guide

Ulua Beach is one of the many resort beaches in Wailea. Snorkeling here is pretty good, although you may get some more sea turtles and fish at other South Maui locations. And I’ve seen many scuba fans enter the water at this beach, so maybe the scenery is better further out. The waves at this […]

Big Beach Video Guide

A video guide to Makena State Beach, also known as Big Beach, on Maui’s south side. Big Beach is one of the most popular beaches on Maui. Snorkeling is good, but beware of various ocean conditions here (strong currents, big waves) – better for the advanced snorkeler. If waves are big, boogie boarding can be […]

Big Beach Pictoral

Photos and videos don’t give Big Beach justice. It’s just one of those kinds of places that can’t be captured by visuals alone. You have to be there to see it’s beauty, because it’s just as much about the mood as it is about the scenery. It’s also about the boogie boarding, people, hiking and […]

Keawanaku Beach

This is Keawanaku Beach, located in the lava fields of South Maui. It’s only accessible by boat or hike. The hike will take you through beautiful La Perouse Bay along the King’s Highway trail where you’ll traverse through the unforgiving lava fields that were made during Maui’s last known eruption. People lived among the rocks […]
