Ma'alaea - Located just minutes from Central Maui, Ma'alaea is best known for the harbor is the launching spot Maui's most memorable experiences. Ma'alaea Bay is home to nine oceanfront condominiums all located along Hau'oli Road just east of the harbor area. Each of the condominiums has different things that will appeal to varying tastes and needs. A small collection of oceanfront homes can also be found along the Ma'alaea coastline as well. The small town harbor town of Ma'alaea offers a few restaurants and a very popular aquarium called the Maui Ocean Center.
 
Ma'alaea Harbor: Formerly a commercial port Ma?alaea Harbor now hosts a marina where many cruise and pleasure boats dock. Among the boats that dock here are whale watching cruise boats as well as those that offer snorkeling trips to Molokini. The waters and reefs of Ma?alaea are important to many species. Ma?alaea Bay is part of the National Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary - a favorite mating and birthing grounds for the endangered Humpbacks. Green Sea Turtles browse reefs that border the harbor entrance.
 
Ma'alaea Beach: Ma'alaea Beach is approximately three miles in length and stretches from Ma?alaea Harbor on the west to Sugar Beach on the east. It is not considered a good beach for sunning and bathing due to what are often high winds. It is, however, excellent for surfing and windsurfing especially when the wind and waves kick up in the afternoon. It is also an excellent "walking" beach. When a robust south swell hits Maui, surfers from far and near head for Ma?alaea to have a chance to experience the tubular perfection of one of the world's fastest rideable waves - the legendary Ma?alaea Pipeline wave. Beginners learn to surf at Ma?alaea's Buzz's Wharf surf break. Outrigger canoe clubs take shelter and rest on the Harbor's small beach and families fish off the harbor wall or spear fish on nearby reefs.
