'Ahihi-Kina'u Beach
'Ahihi Cove is the first
beach located inside the
'Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Area
Reserve. It is a protected
area and it is illegal to
spear or capture fish in the
reserve. There is no sand
beach here, but the cove
is protected from wind and
surf and the snorkeling is
usually terrific.
This area is the site of
the last lava flow on
Maui in 1790. The lava
covered everything as
it poured down from
Haleakala creating a
surreal moonscape.
