Day 2 of Our Tour of Maui, Hawaii - Kamaole Beach Park III, Kamaole Point, Maui, Hawaii - Maui Hawaii Landscape Photography, Maui Hawaii Portrait Photography

Day Two of our Summer Adventure brings us to Kamaole Point (rhymes with calm a olay), also known as Kamaole Beach Park III.  This is the favorite beach among the locals, who call it Kam III (still rhyming with calm not can.)  For almost the last 20 years, our family has spent almost every holiday on the beach that Parents Magazine ranks as the third most family friendly beach in the world, and the most family friendly beach in the Hawaiian Islands.  It is a picturesque beach, with a lot of fun for everyone and I've seen more than one fight break out over which group gets to claim the upper northern corner of the beach on holidays.  The surf can get kind of wild though in the afternoons when the winds kick up.  On high surf advisory days too, this beach gets rough; and we've had days when the water has come right up to the bluffs at the top of the sand.  One of the things that I love best about Hawaii is that private beaches are not allowed, as they are in California.  You can't buy your way into owning your own beach, and you can't cut off the locals from enjoying them.  I love that this is so.  The land still belongs to them in some ways, and hopefully always will.  So join us on Day Two of our Summer Adventure and enjoy the beach that the locals love the best.
