Launiupoko is a residential area on the mauka side of Honopiilani Highway, it sits on the lower slopes of the West Maui mountains, and is directly above Launiupoko Beach Park. One of the area's main draw is the views it offers. From its perch, world class views over looking the glistening Pacific Ocean, Moloka?i, Lana'i and Kaho?olawe are some of the best the island has to offer. During the winter months, humpback whales breaching and frolicking in the are a joy to watch, and every sunset is more magical than the last.

Launiupoko Beach Park 

Many favor the beach for its beautiful green grass area complete with picnic tables and barbecue stations. The park is a convenient place for a quick dip but it is also known to be an awesome place for beginning surfers.

The beach is best in the summer months when very well formed and consistent surf breaks are firing across the line up. The not so large breaks work well as beginning surfers and surf schools often teach here. The beach is also a growing popular location for stand-up paddlers when the seas are flat to medium surf. This is one of the last beach parks on the west side to get the wrap-around trades from the north so it will often remain calm, without white-caps well into the afternoon hours.
