The stargazing at La Perouse Bay is truly amazing and will blow you away. Just be careful driving through all the lava rock to get there. It is actually not allowed for most rental cars!
From the water, it is a popular place for fishing and snorkel excursions. The best part about a snorkeling adventure is all the dolphins!

Take the road all the way to the end. It can get narrow, so go slow. It’s a beautiful bay. You can snorkel, but it depends on the winds and tides, as it can get very rough. Not recommended for beginners. This hike is not difficult yet exhilarating as the ocean's waves lap along the coast. There is a trail to follow and can take you around the inlets where you can view lava vents from the last volcanic eruption in Maui (1790). There are several awesome black sand beach areas and even a couple of tall Palms showing the resilience of nature! Wear sturdy shoes for ease of travel (hiking boots are best) and bring water as the sun is hot! You will love this hike which can be as long or short as you want.

Get here in the early morning and you may see spinner dolphins! The drive out here is an adventure, from the greenery and ocean views to a lava field. It's almost like you've landed on another planet. Bring shoes so you can enjoy the hike around the point!
