Longboarding at Launiopoko

One of the great features of this park is that it is so sprawling that even on weekends when there are 10 birthday parties happening at once, you can still find a shady nook to yourself.  Some of the most elegant surfers on Maui can be seen hanging ten here during south swells.  The sandy beach is an easy entry point for surfers of all ages and abilities. Keiki love to splash and jump in the natural salt water pool.  Plenty of picnic tables and grills also make this a great place for a family dinner to watch the sunset.
