Aloha to Maui - Honolua Overlook and Kahakuloa Head

Continuing the Road to West Maui ... 

... we stopped at Honolua overlook.  The cove is popular with snorkling cruises.   

The winding road leads to ...

... to the Kahakuloa Head.

From Hawaii Web (at this link)

The 18th Century Maui king, Kahekili, use to spend time in this area. Legend states that before breakfast, the agile King would climb 200-feet up the hill and "leap" into the water below.

I loved the vastness of the rolling volcanic hills with green cover.

Underneath is rich red rock!   Are you adventurous to leap off a rock? One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  This giveaway is open to all readers. Comments are open through Saturday, October 13, 10 pm in Hawaii.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, October 14.

  1. I love seeing these pictures. Amazing sites.

  2. I am so glad that I get your daily "shot of Hawaii". Such a very beautiful state. Thank you!!

  3. I'm not real adventurous these days. Love the pictures.

  4. I'm probably not that adventurous, so no leaping off the rock.

  5. I jumped off a high cliff once, or at least it was pretty high up. It was in a rock quarry in Ohio. Really deep water, and kind of scary. I shake my head about the things I did in my youth!

  6. I'm afraid I'm not very brave lol. Loved the pics.

  7. No leaping off rocks into the water for me. I'll save my adventurous side for some other activity!

  8. No don't like rocks

  9. No,I wouldn't jump! Thanks for all the great photos!

  10. I have jumped off rocks before....not 200 feet rocks though!

  11. I'd leap off a rock if there's deep water just a few feet below.
