About Dragon's Teeth , Kapalua

It’s pretty easy to make out the reason for this attractions impressive name. It’s the rock. Their jagged lines resemble the jaws of some great beast. Though there’s not much to do here, the sight itself is impressive enough for a 15-minute detour from wherever it was you were going to. Word of warning – there’s a golf course nearby, and there’s a chance that a hard-struck errant ball could be headed straight for your head. Be careful.

A little further on from the Teeth, but before the tip of the headland at Makaluapuna Point, there is an ancient Hawaiian burial site called Honokahua. It’s a sacred site, so don’t go traipsing around.

Dragon's Teeth , Kapalua Reviews

  • Gorgeous, craggy rocks and views! Fun to walk out and climb around; I've been sitting out here for hours whale watching. True that access to this spot is nestled between two resort properties, but there is a single row of public parking, at the head of the trail, if you know where to look. Easy to walk to from the Ritz Carlton.

  • This location is a treasure; well worth the visit, if you are capable of walking over uneven ground; and even better if you can hike a bit from abundant parking all over the place. We've been there several times. Pay attention to the golfers on the tee to your left as you walk down the path, and stay off the course! You'll be rewarded with great waves; great stone formations; and a meditative walk in the labyrinth. If no one's around, check out the tee for the next hole, requiring a drive over the water. Nice. But respect the course and golfers. Afterwards, go look at the nice sculpture on your left as you come up from the Point.

  • One of my favorite short and easy hikes on west Maui!! Weather is always so different and ocean is usually so powerful and strong out at the point!! Ssshhh please keep a secret so tons of people don't show up! Only less then 20 parking spots.

  • Unique rock formations. Ancient prayer maze. Whales jumping in the ocean. Giant turtles!

  • Great lookout spot. A short walk along the edge of a golf course.
