Ukumehame Beach Park is located near the 12 mile marker along the Honoapiilani Highway (Hwy 30) in West Maui. The park takes its name from the huge valley which can be seen directly behind it which carves a spectacular “V” in the West Maui Mountains. These dangerous valley ridges eventually lead to the pass that that was taken by King Kamehmeha’s army of Spartan like warriors who successfully attacked Maui’s warriors from behind in the decisive battle of the Iao Valley.

A couple and their dog was enjoying a day at the beach playing. The dog worked hard at finding the ball and sticks his owner sent flying into the air. After a while the dog came in for a water break and to roll in the sand. He was having a good day.

The drift wood along the beach was very neat looking.
