mala warf

Mala wharf was once a fully-functioning pier which served as a shipping facility for Maui’s agriculture, including pineapple. In 1992, 30 ft. surf came marching into Lahaina as a result of Hurricane Iniki, and the end of the dock was completely destroyed. Today, the pilings from the old dock lie scattered along the ocean floor, and what was once a shipping facility above water is now a healthy artificial reef which is home to a vast array of marine life. Residents will fish from the pier, and visitors come to enjoy the scenic vista.
