Take a break from the surfers to walk a short distance to Lipoa Point, with its weird rock formations and tide pools that work for snorkeling—when surf is low. Most tourists come to this undeveloped coast (a few miles north of Kapalua) to dip fins and a mask into the Honolua Marine Preserve. Colorful schools flit along long ridges of coral. Avoid Honolua after and during rains, when stream runoff muddies the waters. See Maui Trailblazer page 72 for more.
