MOKULEIA BEACH MAUI - Place Of Abundance

On the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii, lies a somewhat secluded beach up on the north shore.
It is known as “Slaughterhouse Beach” , a horrible name for a place so beautiful. It received it’s “nickname” because of the Honolua Slaughterhouse that was located on the seacliffs above the beach. Don’t be discouraged! It was torn down in the 1960’s but somehow the name stuck.

The beaches original Hawaiian name is “Mokuleia Beach”, which translated, means “place of abundance”. This is a much more fitting name for such a beautiful place. It’s gorgeous scenery attracts visitors who are willing to take the drive up the coast. It is a secluded and uncrowded pocket of white sand backed by rugged sea cliffs, with a perfect view of the Islands of Lanai and Molokai. In the winter, the surf can be treacherous, but in the summer, the waves gently roll into shore, making it the perfect getaway for swimming, snorkeling, and body surfing. A hidden Paradise on Maui’s North Shore.
