Storm Coming

Shot just before sunset at Mai Poina Beach Park/Mai Poina 'Oe Ia'u Park beach.

This park is located on South Kihei Rd. in Kihei, Hi.

Mai Poina Oe’la’u (dreamily translating to "forget me not" in native Hawaiian) is generally not as crowded as its nearby counterparts, and easy access makes it perfect for an afternoon picnic, an early morning jog, or whale watching in the winter months. The narrow, soft sandy beach is quintessentially south Maui and does not disappoint. Plus, the warm waters of Kihei are, year after year, chosen by humpback whales as ideal sites for calving, nursing, and mating. If you visit between November and March, there’s a good chance you’ll get a glimpse of these majestic behemoths.
