La Perouse Bay
La Perouse Bay is a stretch of coastline bordering the Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve on Maui’s south shore. It was named for the French explorer Jean-François de La Pérouse, the first European to set foot on Maui in the 18th century. The bay is the site of Maui’s most recent volcanic activity, and the landscape is covered in jagged, black lava rock intermixed with pieces of white coral. Though there isn’t much of a beach visitors can hike this area using the King’s Trail, which winds past several small coves.

As its waters are protected from fishing by state law, aquatic life is abundant and excellent snorkeling spots can be found off its rocky coast. Spinner dolphins sightings are frequent in the bay. When waters are calm, it can be a great spot for swimming and kayaking.

Practical Info

La Perouse Bay is located at the end of Makena Alanui Road, at mile marker 7 just south of Wailea. There is a parking lot at the end of the road, but other facilities are limited. Arrive early for optimal hiking and snorkeling conditions before winds pick up in the afternoon.
Address: Wailea, Hawaii, USA
