Full Description
Located pretty close to the end of the Makena Road in south Maui, Ahihi Bay is easy to find via our map marker (see directions page) and the fact that there really isn't much else this far south. If you hit La Perouse Bay then you went all the way to the end and can catch Ahihi Bay on the way back.

The parking lot is pretty rough and rocky and that's pretty much how everything else will be out here as well.

You can follow the trail from the parking lot to the water see some neat looking lava rock and beautiful views but there is no sandy beach here.

It can be a great place to snorkel due to the abundant marine life around here (fishing is not allowed) but only if the water is clear enough, which means the ocean needs to be calm. If you aren't going to snorkel then there likely isn't much for you here.

This is a great spot for snorkeling when conditions are good but it's not at all beachy so not a great place if you aren't snorkeling.

This is a part of Maui that is secluded, with few people and shaded with ironwood trees. It takes a small hike across the cobbled rock to get there, but I think it's worth it if you like snorkeling. Once you put on your mask and fins, the rocky beach will be the last thing on your mind. The snorkeling is good, and I particularly like the feeling of isolation in this environment. Does this feel like a tropical beach? Not really. But does the water have all the tropical fish you came to Hawaii to see? Yes. You probably won't be completely alone at Ahihi Cove, but, to me, it's far better than all those crowds at Black Rock.
