Scenic Northwest Maui

Driving past Lahaina, past Napili, past Kapalua, you come around to the very scenic Northwest Maui region off rugged cliffs and bluffs. Some beautiful  beaches, hiking areas and many opportunities to photograph some of Maui’s most spectacular scenery awaits you. Some of the special areas of interest are the Nakalele Blowhole, and the Olivine Pools. Also along the way you’ll find Lipoa Point, Punalau Beach, Honokohau Bay. You’ll end up in the quaint Hawaiian village of Kahakaloa where you you can buy some of the best banana bread on the island!

A November Morning at Kaenae Peninsula

Where is Kaenae Peninsula? It’s about halfway to Hana, the turn off well marked. Drive down and enjoy the spectacular scenery! On a November morning at Kaenae Peninsula such as this, the surf was high, so high that big wave surfers were gathered at the infamous Jaws (Peahi) for Peahi Challenge. Meanwhile, I captured some big waves crashing against the lava rocky shoreline using both a drone and digital camera to capture some not everyday images of one of Maui’s many exquistely scenic locations.

Aerial Views of La Perouse Bay

 

La Perouse Bay on Maui’s south shore is a fantastic area for kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and sightseeing; with its many inlets and coves amidst the lava, the aerial, and underwater, scenery is beautiful. Using a DJI Phantom drone, I was able to get high above the area and showcase the rugged and beautiful landscape of this popular area of Maui. La Perouse Bay got it’s name from Jean-Franois de Galoup, Comte de La Prouse, a French explorer. He was the first European to set foot on Maui in 1786. The lava flow which makes up the area is one of Hawaii’s most recent (1788), save the current active lava flow of Kilauea on the Big Island.
