 Minor light of Maui - Hawea Point, HI    
A hike of some distance required.

Travel Instructions: Follow Highway 30 west from Lahaina for nine miles and then turn left onto Office Road, which leads to the Kapalua Golf Academy. When Office Road ends, turn left onto Lower Honoapiilani Road, and then after a half mile turn right onto Bay Road. I don't believe there is public parking in these condominiums, but the Hawea Light is on the point beyond the development.

The lighthouse is owned by the Coast Guard. Grounds open, tower closed.
