You can see Lanai from here, and Kaho'olawe and Molokini islands

From South Maui you can see a number of other islands.  The largest one is Lanai, which has recently gotten a lot of attention since being bought by Larry Ellison in 2012.  Lanai is part of Maui County and it mostly relies on tourism to keep people employed.  There is talk of a third resort to be built on Lanai, in addition to the Four Seasons at Manele Bay and the Lodge at Koele.  I think a lot of good things wil be coming to "the Pineapple Isle" with the input of new energy.

Also in view from this spot on Keawakapu Beach are a couple of uninhabited islands.  The larger island of Kaho'olawe has undergone a dramatic restoration in recent years, with the goal of bringing it to it's former state before it was used as a bombing range by the U.S. Army.  Kaho'olawe is off limits and you won't be able to get over there unless you're part of a Native Hawaiian project.  Molokini is the small crescent shaped island that sits between Kahoolawe and Maui.  It's a federally protected seabird sanctuary that's also a great snorkel and diving destination.

Islands, beaches, sand and palm trees.  The sound of gentle waves lapping. Soft breezes and tropical scents.  That's what you'll find here in South Maui.  Kihei, Wailea, and Makena are the resort destinations sought after by many.  It's a brisk real estate market with plenty of condos ranging in price from $112,000 to $5,600,000.  What are you looking for?

The West Maui mountains loom close from the shoreline in Wailea and Kihei and almost appear to be another island, but you can drive over there in 30-40 minutes.

Great pictures and I wish I could go to one of them at least. But then I may never come home again.
