Haleakala National Park Kula
#1 of 152 Nature & Parks in Maui
We explored both parts of the park, taking in waterfalls and rainforest life, as well as exploring the highest peaks, lava rock hillsides and unique silver swords.
There are lots of great hiking trails, waterfalls, and the park rangers take great pride in the park and have lots of awesome information about the parks' history.

Best way is to park at Halemau'u and do the hitch hiker pick-up or have someone you know take you up to the summit while you leave your car at Halemau'u.

Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve
#10 of 152 Nature & Parks in Maui
This is a Nature Reserve and has some of the best snorkelling on the island but the fish bring in the Tiger Sharks and they sometimes close the area - watch the signs.
There is parking a little ways past the nature reserve and a small path that leads back to the reserve.I would definitely recommend this place while in the Kihei/ Waliea area.Drive past the nature reserve to La Pe...

For anyone that loves hiking, wildlife and nature, this place is awesome.
This lava tube, a freak of nature, erupts every 20 seconds with some blasts as high as 100 feet in the air, depending on the surf that day.
Napili Beach Lahaina
#14 of 152 Nature & Parks in Maui
It has fun nooks and crannies so you can park yourself under a tree and feel like you are semi-secluded despite the crowds.
There is no parking lot, so everyone parks on the sides of Lower Honoapiilani Road above the beach.
Kamaole Beach Park 3 Kihei
#15 of 152 Nature & Parks in Maui
In my opinion "Kam 3" Beach Park is the best in South Kihei ... swimming, snorkelling, beachcombing, shady areas; access to Eddie Pu hiking trail which connects to beach walking, all the way to Wailea .......
I stood next to a humongous one sunning off the nature trail leading south from this beach (which is a great walking trail if you're here), and saw them in the surf eating off the rocks on the south side of the be...

With just a short drive north of Lahaina/Kahana, you can see beautiful countryside, ocean views, colorful cliffs, and this wonder of nature.

It's perfect for a picnic, and there are feral chickens running around (some followed by chicks), and at the north end of the park, through the trees, is a spot where sea turtles congregate.
