This nature attraction is located in south Maui. About 45min drive from the airport driving towards Waimea. I was trying to get more information about this area but there were only few so I was hesitant. But I'm glad we made the drive. Driving here...More

Definitely worth a visit, however there is not much to do there. It is easy to get to, it is near and it is cool. However, after about 5 minutes and few photos you can move on, I wouldn't go out my way to go...More

Do yourself a favor and go on the complete 1.5 mile hike after driving to the parking lot. It's slightly less than 3 miles round trip. Lava formations grow wilder as you trek further along the coast, and keep an eye out for occasional goats...More

As you drive the road to the lava fields you feel as though you have traveled to another planet. The jagged rocky lava here does not resemble the smooth flowing lava that usually comes to mind. It looks as though huge dump trucks randomly dumped...More

Absolutely fabulous hike along the ocean and lava fields. There is also a blowhole along the way that soaked everybody. Almost moonscape in some areas the fields butt up against the ocean. The trail leads through twisted live and dead copse of trees, small rocky...More

We went for a drive to the Lava Fields and it was just amazing how big the area of lava there was. I couldn't believe how light the lava rocks were. It was a great little bit of history to see on our holiday.

The landscape here is otherworldly. The drive there, along the really rough road carved through the lava fields, is really interesting. The scenery is really unique and you can hike through the lava fields. We traveled with young kids and so we didn't travel very...More
