This isn’t a place to make a special trip to. It’s a gravel road that leads to an overlook and a very small lighthouse. The view is neat, but not any neater than 100 other views on Maui. Skip it.

What an amazing spot to look out onto the Pacific Ocean over the Auau Channel. A great place to see whales. So very picturesque.

Interesting little light house and nice view, but no whales and we were there first thing in the morning.

The lighthouse isn't anything special to see but the views are amazing. At the beginning of our trip we stopped here and saw several whales (spots) in the bay but towards the end of our trip we stopped again and we didn't see any. When...More

This was the first place we stopped in Maui. The view, like most any in Maui, is spectacular and allows you to see south Maui, Molakini Crater, Lanai and the Maui shoreline. However the light isn't a lighthouse and it had a good deal of...More

The review is mixed, a 5 for the view but a 1 for the light. The light itself is located just west of Maalaea on the makai side, it is accessible by a short dirt road. There are no facilities located at this location. After...More

As it is whale season now we heard this was a good spot to try and see some whales. Unfortunately we had no such luck. Though it was still great to see the expansive views from this lookout point

This isn't really a lighthouse. It's an ugly white small tower with graffiti. The view is pretty but there for 5 minutes and you're ready to leave.
