Hawea Point is one of our favorite morning hike destinations while on Maui to sit, drink a cup of coffee, watch the ocean, explore the tide pools, and during the winter months, watch the whales. We access this location from the south. We park at a public access parking lot at the south end of Kapalua Bay adjacent to the Napili Kia resort. From there we walk the Kapalua Beach trail north to the Hawea point area. The trail continues on to Oneloa Beach and the Kapalua resort. Sometimes we take that route and sometimes we just turn around.
