  • We did not get to spend the time here that we would have liked but during the time we were there it w easy to see the wild beauty of this place.  more »
  • I had seen this place described on Hawaii.com and so we wanted to try it out. There is no signage for this but if you pull over on the side of the road at any of the dirt pull outs you will come acros...  more »
  • It was extremely windy and rough, so we viewed the pools from above. Worth the drive, we passed it by mistake and the road became extremely narrow (so we did a 7 point turn) turned around and went bac...  more »

  • Beautiful place, but as of March 28, 2018 a father age 46 from Montana lost his life saving his daughter who was swept into the ocean. There are other beautiful places to visit on Maui minus the danger. Be safe and use common sense no one wants to return home minus 1. Aloha
  • The place is very beautiful. As we were going to down to the pools, our local familiar told us that it seemed rougher than usual but it seemed like we could occupy the pools closest to shore without much problem. We swam for a while and as we were just getting out, a huge rouge wave thrashed us, taking the two kids off the edge and putting the three of us adults in the wash cycle. We all came out, luckily, with only some bad cuts and bruises. Apparently those rouge waves are not uncommon. This one was easily four times bigger than any other we'd observed there. Be careful there.
  • This is a beautiful spot to swim as long as you’re cautious and prepared. The scenery and views are amazing. Bring proper footwear and I recommend a snorkel.
  • It is fairly steep. We did not make it all the way down. Probably cooler when you get closer. Sign warning some one died there and to be careful. We were carrying a 2 year old otherwise we would probably have made it to the pools.
  • Beautiful place to appreciate the ocean and coastline. There are some stark reminders of a fatal accident there from 2017. If you keep the pools between you and the ocean and stay conscious of conditions, it's definitely worth the hike/climb down.
