The youngest family members may even walk right into the ocean from the sandy beach fronting the Resort where a living coral reef provides food and shelter for an abundance of sea life creating an underwater show to rival any other snorkel spot on Maui.
Birdwatchers gather near a small wetland pond and dune on the 38-acre property that is being restored with indigenous beach plants, creating a healthy habitat that is drawing increasing numbers of migratory and water birds.
