It is a nice place to take your family out and enjoy the natural beauty of the island of Maui. It actually has some natural geysers etc. to look at as well

We enjoyed our hike today. Scenery ever changing with a nice ocean breeze and views to the mountain. Stop at Makena Park for a refreshing swim after. Please don’t try this in flip flops or sandals as it has some challenging terrain to walk over...More
