Highway 340, West Maui

The Olivine Pools were named for a semi-precious gem found encrusted in the surrounding lava and sandstone. These naturally-formed swimming pools are located on a lava shelf stretching along the coastline. When the sea is calm, the area is excellent for swimming, wading and sunbathing.

Notice the unusual lava formations surrounding the area as you bathe in these wonderful pools.

Useful Information:
Wear reef shoes when walking on the lava.
Wear study shoes to walk the trail to the pools as it awkward and may be slippery.
Do not wear lotions or oils in the pools as it may harm tiny sea life that make these pools their home.
Do NOT remove rocks, fish, or any sea life from the area. No facilities available.
Monitor the ocean at all times - waves can be very unpredictable and dangerous.

Directions:
Take Highway 30 past the Bellstone going toward Kahakuloa Village. A small gravel road on the left is located just prior to Mile Marker #16. Park and walk toward the ocean. A rock platform overlooks the pools. To the left of this overlook is a lava bench and a trail leading down to it and the lava shelf.
