Maluaka Beach (Turtle Town) - Description

Maluaka Beach is a real paradise for people and animals. Turquoise waters, an abundant reef, calm waters, sand, rocks, shady trees - the beach shows Maui in its natural beauty. The green sea turtles (in Hawaiian: Honu) and made the beach section a popular and lively place. For this reason, the beach got its second name Turtle Town as a nickname.
