Haloa Point is on the South side of Palauea Beach. The county of Maui has purchased 2 lots here, to ensure public access, but houses are planned on the rest. Entering at the south side of the beach, swim out on the surface past the lava rocks sticking up out of the water. Nearby, there is a shallow cave that often has green sea turtles and reef white tip sharks inside. Farther out, there is a small arch with a buoy. To the south, the reef is extensive, and is filled with lots of interesting critters. There are often manta rays cruising by in the daytime.
