About a mile and a half from where I currently reside is a small notch in the shoreline known locally as the Cove. It’s the local favorite surfing spot on the west coast of Maui. The waves are not too big so there are lots of beginners and tourists taking a stab at riding said waves.
The Cove is located adjacent to Kalama Park, a beautifully landscaped beach side park with a walking trail, picnic areas, pavilions for big events, ball fields, tennis courts, roller skating rink, skateboard park, and more. On any given day the park is bustling with activities but the surfing seems to be the big draw. Both regular surfboards and stand up paddle boards were in the water when I made this trip. It’s already got my paddle juices flowing.
Several surf companies rent out said boards and some even offer surf lessons for beginners. It’s going to be awhile before I can get back into paddling again but it’s nice to see a little spot where one without any real surfing skills can go and not get killed by the waves. Plus the surrounding views are spectacular. Have a look:
This place just keeps getting more better every day.
