Olowalu is Hawaii’s hidden paradise of a town. Located on the west side of Maui island, Olowalu homes were a rich traditional farming community in its past and have always had the necessary resources for relaxed, sustainable, and comfortable living! The town is even home to some intriguing history as it was ruled by a high chieftess by the name of Kalola.
Olowalu is definitely full of some extraordinary sights, such as its historic and large coral reef. The town is also called turtle reef, as it contains perhaps Hawaii’s most unique ocean reef on its very own Olowalu Beach. This reef is truly incredible and contains coral dated with hundreds of years of age! Not only is this strong coral a sight to see, but the large reef is a home to hundreds of marine animals, such as black tip reef sharks or manta rays. Olowalu’s coral reef may be a once in lifetime experience, where you will get to experience the tropical marine life that inhabits Maui.
The clear, blue waters that surround the island are perfect for water activities. Scuba diving is a great option for checking out the colorful fish and ocean life up close, and if you’re more of a stick-to-the-surface kind of person, snorkeling is another great option to experience the Hawaiian waters. In fact, is considered among the Top 10 snorkeling locations to visit!
Olowalu is also one of the best destinations for beachside camping. With the scenic views, vivid sunrises and sunsets, and tropical, bright nature, there is hardly a better place! Enjoy the sights and sounds that make up the authentic Hawaiian town, all the while enjoying the warm sunny beach! Olowalu homes are truly a gem of Hawaii, and a town that anyone with a love or fascination of marine life should visit!
