The result of one of the last lava flows on Maui, Dragon’s Teeth is a unique rock formation located at Makaluapuna Point in Kapalua on the Island’s Northwestern shore. Hundreds of years ago, the molten lava that poured from the West Maui volcano was lighter, denser and more fine-grained than other flows on the island, and as it crawled towards the ocean, fierce waves and sea winds sweeping in over the point caused the lava to harden in an upward fashion – causing jagged black points that look like dragon’s teeth.
Ariel and Yanick chose Makaluapuna Point for a honeymoon photo shoot in Kapalua. Also called “dragons teeth” because of its jagged rocks, this spot is great for black and white photos and dramatic sea-spray backdrops. With the West Maui mountains in the distance, it was a great choice for Ariel and Yanick to roam around and capture sweet Maui memories.
