Kanaha has a very high incidence of Crystal Meth users. They hide in the woods surrounding the park. These people are in desperate need of help. Meth is a rampant problem on Maui. It has caused the theft rate in Maui to skyrocket. I have...More

There are nicer beaches to go to. Believe me. I know what I am talking about. Just cause it is practically across from the Kahului airport doesn't mean convenience should play a factor in your decision! If you are into windsurfing may I suggest Ho'okipa,...More
