Kamaole 2 beach on a busy morning

The kids and I walked to Kamaole I beach yesterday. We enjoy this beach, usually camping out right in front of the life guard station. I personally enjoy going to life guarded beaches - always nice to have a second and third set of eyes on the kids.

Our aim was to go exploring the rocks on the south end of the beach - climbing around looking in the tide pools for animals. We saw a huge crab and various other tide pool creatures. It's not the best place to go tide pooling, but we'd never tried this location. We ended up walking across the lawn in front of the Royal Mauian to Kamaole II beach, just to the south of Kam I. This is the beach across from Fred's and Moose McGillicudy's in Kihei. I was surprised the beaches weren't busier, it being a holiday.

Kamaole II beach in South Kihei on Good Friday - compare this to beaches in Waikiki (Oahu)!

Wait a minute - was that a whale?
yes, there's a humpback whale saying hello to the boat!
