Relax at the hidden Pa’ako Beach (Secret Cove) on Maui

Tom’s experience relaxing at Secret Cove:

Pa’Ako Beach, also known as Secret Cove, is no longer much of a secret but is still a very pretty beach to visit. The beach isn’t very large but it is very pretty especially if you go around sunset. There are a lot of rocks which make the waves coming onto the beach fun to watch.

Cliff Jump and Swim at the Secret Venus Pool

Tom’s experience cliff jumping into the Venus Pool:

The Venus Pool, also known as Wiakoa Pond,  is a beautiful area along the coast on East Maui.
Venus Pool Hana

You must park along the road and then head over the fence and through the grass field. The trail will lead down to the pool. This is a great spot to swim or cliff jump.

Venus Pool Maui

The pool is very deep and is filled by the ocean during high tide but can become separated from the ocean during low tide.

This has become quite the popular spot but Hawaiian lore says that in ancient times only royalty were allowed to visit this beautiful spot.
