First, stop at West Maui Cycles to pick up any last second riding supplies (need a spare tube) or rent a bike in Lahaina. From the bike shop, ride south on Highway 30 out of Lahaina Town towards Kahului.

After riding approximately 3 miles out Lahaina, Launiupoko beach park is on the right at the only stop light after leaving Lahaina. When you see the Highway 30 Mile Marker 15, approximately 6.0 miles from West Maui Cyles bike shop, you'll notice a group of large trees shading the highway.
