Parks on Maui

waterfall
Haleakala National Park

Haleakala National Park is a vast national park encompassing a variety of small island environments. Broken into different areas based on geography, the park is divided into the Summit Area, which includes the dormant volcano Mt. Haleakala for which the park was named and the Kipahulu Area that includes the coastal landscape. The area is filled with natural pools and freshwater waterfalls.

Haleakala
Haleakala Summit

Haleakala means “house of the sun" in Hawaiian. This mountain is a massive dormant shield volcano that formed the base of over 75% of the island of Maui. The height of the volcano reaches a peak of more than 10,00 feet, and the National Park that surrounds it extends from the summit down all the way to the Kipahulu shoreline. Sunset and sunrise are popular times to visit the summit as the sun offers truly breathtaking views as it rises above, or below, the skyline.

Iao Needle
Iao Valley State Park

One of the most iconic landmarks on an island of almost incomparable beauty, the Iao Needle is to Maui what Diamond Head is to Oahu: a rock pinnacle that rises an amazing 2250 feet and is covered in velvet green tropical plants. This point has historical significance for Hawaii, being the site of the battle of Kepaniwai where King Kamehameha I fought to unite the islands.
