Maui is a great place to call home. I have lived on Maui most of my life with short stints in Honolulu, Malibu, and parts of Australia. These cities/towns are all world-renowned locations for beaches, healthy lifestyles, recreation, entertainment, etc.
However, I have always come home to Maui for the lifestyle that is just right. We on Maui have short commutes between towns and from one side of the island to the other. We have some of the best uncrowded beaches in the world with Hamoa, Flemings, Wailea, and Kaanapali Beach often in the top 10. We have great food, shopping, and activities in cool Main Street towns like Paia, Lahaina, Wailuku, and Makawao. The list goes on and on.
However, many activities that are available to everyone are part of the very reason why many of us live here. We love the ocean, the streams, the people, and we love the adventures available on Maui…
Maui is situated among Lana’i, Moloka’i, Molokini, and Kaho’olawe. Many days of the year, it is an ocean lover’s playground to be able to play between these islands. As a competitive athlete in Hawaii’s state sport of Outrigger Canoe Paddling, it is the ideal location to be able to paddle between islands in Hawaii.
One of those inter-island crossings has become a world-renowned race in September. The Pailolo Challenge, hosted by my own Hawaiian Canoe Club, runs on the premier downwind course in Hawaii. This trek starts in Kapalua on Fleming’s beach in front of the Ritz Carlton Kapalua. The race continues past many small towns off of Moloka’i’s east side, including Puko’o, Wailua, and on to Kaunakakai after 27 miles of down wind enjoyment and adventure.
This has become one of the premier international courses for all downwind ocean activities, including kite surfing, S-U-Ping, paddle-boarding, one-man canoes, etc. More on those later when their months arrive.
Along with adventure, these small towns on Moloka’i have a few great properties available to offer for immediate ownership. This one in particular is a very rare location in Wailua (MLS# 349238). View other unique Moloka’i properties here.
