Known to surfers as the “Maui Pipeline,” this large, sucking, barreling left breaks north of Honolua Bay. The best viewpoint is from atop the cliff before the road to Punalau beach, and with a pair of binoculars or a telephoto lens, you might see Clay Marzo and his acrobatic cutbacks dissecting the 20-foot surf. Winter brings the largest waves, and mornings the cleanest conditions.
