    Within walking distance from our condo, there is so much to do and see in this area. The best is whale watching during the winter months.

    A very nice bay with great views in both direction. It is on the west side of the island, so the sunsets here are stunning.

    Book scuba, snorkeling, and whale watching excursions into Maalaea Bay leaving from Maalaea Harbor only 4 miles from our Menehune Shores condo. During whale season, you'll be able to see many whales in the bay from our lanai. The unique Molokini Crater is also located in the bay which is a favorite snorkeling and scuba destination.

    The Aquarium, mini-golf, some shops and several restaurants here. Boats for Molokini depart from this harbor. Afternoon it is often windy.

    It is fun to see the boats and there are shops and restaurants too. Many of the boating excursions leave from Maalaea.

    Did you know that Maalaea Harbour on the bay is the second windiest harbour in the world? It is also filled with whales from November until April.

    It is the refuge for the Humpback Whales that appear December through April every year. You have a perfect view from the Condo's Lanai.

    Being as our condo is right on the bay we naturally think it's beautiful. One of the wonderful things about the bay is the long nature preserve between Kihei and our condo. You can literally walk for miles on the sand and likely not run into anyone. You can always drive the 15 minutes to any of the crowded Maui beaches if you want to watch people, but it's rare that you you find a beach this beautiful and secluded, yet close to everything else.

    Windiest bay in America! Lots of fishing and snorkeling boats depart from here, but they also have a mini-golf place if you need entertainment outside of all that Maui's natural beauty has to offer.

    The 2nd windiest harbor in the world! Many boats available for snorkeling, whale watching, sunset tours and dives out to Molokini Crater. Just refurbished, new concrete laid. Better parking. Great restaurants. Bathrooms and an upstairs shopping area.
