Maui’s North Shore offers many exciting activities all year long. Many of our top action sports rely on Maliko Gulch as a launch point for tow in surfing, fishing, jet ski support, one man canoe, SUP downwinders, etc.
The Olu Kai Ho’olaule’a in May is a great example of the famous Maliko run course that Mauians do for fun, and world class athletes visit for, with multiple races starting from this revered area.
Maliko is a beautiful spot about one mile East of Hookipa Beach Park between Kuau and Haiku. It is the main refuge from the elements of wind and surf of Maui’s rugged exposed windward coastline.
My family loves to go to Maliko in the mornings and afternoons to get away from any crowds at any beaches, and let the dog run and the baby play. Living in Kuau, this is only a 2 mile trip to get away from it all…
It is an instant recharge to swim in the clear waters where the ocean and the streams meet in the bay – refreshing. Maybe not the ultimate adventure, but it is a great way to start or end a wonderful day on Maui.
A hui hou!
