This smaller beach area is referred to as "Little Beach". The division between Big Beach and Little Beach was caused by a lava flow and earthquake in 1790.

31: Klua is a traditional Hawaiian cooking method that utilizes an imu, or underground oven. Traditionally, extremely hot volcanic (lava) rocks were placed in a hole approximately 6' by 4' by 3' and the hole was lined with vegetation such as banana leaves. A salted pig was placed inside and covered with more banana leaves to preserve the heat and flavor. Then, it was covered with burlap and soil, and left to steam all day. Once removed from the imu, the pig was ready to be served.
35: Haleakala National Park is home to Maui's highest peak. Rising 10,023 feet above sea level, Haleakala's graceful slopes can be seen from just about any point on the island. Haleakala means "house of the sun" in Hawaiian, and legend has it that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun from its journey across the sky as he stood on the volcano’s summit, slowing its descent to make the day last even longer.
