Not your typical tourist attraction, La Perouse Bay in the Ahihi-Kinau Marine Preserve on Maui is my favourite place in Hawaii. With stunning black sand beaches, crystal water lapping against a rustic coastline and remnants of lava from the last volcanic eruption in Maui, La Perouse Bay is an experience which is truly out of this world!
Driving will only get you so far – the road ends at beautiful lava flats and the bay is then only accessible via a walking trail. While hiking across uneven volcano rock may not sound appealing, the walk is not difficult, and the view is spectacular! Pack proper walking shoes as sandals are probably not appropriate!
