With flights leaving Maui at around 2:00 p.m., we made a reservation for lunch at Mama's Fish House on Kuau Cove at 11:00 a.m. The day was glorious - bright sun, clear blue skies, warm and a light breeze. We left Hana early, around 7:00 a.m., in order to miss the road work on the Hana Highway as well as to give us time to stop and take photos along the way. Even with stops, we pulled in to the parking lot for Ho'okipa Beach, next door to Kuau Cove, at 9:30 a.m.
Ho'okipa Beach - What a magnificent location! This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The mountains in the distance, the rows of breaking waves approaching the shore, the green of the palm trees and the blues of the water and sky, I could have stayed there all day, mesmerized. And, when you add the surfers, and our whale and turtle sightings, it was truly entertaining as well. See what you think by watching Peter's video on Youtube.
