a little jaunt to the ‘Iao Valley

We had a great, mellow day that included a trip to the ‘Iao Valley, which is just a short 40 minute drive from Lahaina, near Wailuku Town. Along the way we spotted whales splashing – a  baby and mom. It was the quintessential day on Maui!

We first stopped off at the Hawaii Nature Center

Gorgeous ‘Iao Valley…

The ‘Iao Needle

Warriors used it as their look out spot back in the day

We played in the water…you can see a lei someone had thrown into the water peeking out from behind a rock.

And then we got rained on…

and packed it up to go home.

Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. What a fun outing! I’ve only been Hawaii once. We only visited Maui, but I vaguely remember driving the road to Hana. It’s nice to get a peek at life away from the ocean. Thanks for sharing Sarah!
