There are many places in Maui where you can find sea glass, especially if you walk along the shore at low tide where small pebbles lie on the beach.
I’ve read in forums and in comment sections on blogs that people have found nice sea glass shards in Lahaina in front of Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant in Maui; however, much of the sea glass has disappeared.
Find Sea Glass in Kahana, Maui
One place where you’ll be sure to find some sea glass is a small cove off Lower Honoapiilani Road at the end of Pohaku Park. Pohaku Park is also referred to as S-Turns because of curve that used to be there until it was straightened.
Go During Low Tide
One caveat: Be sure to go an hour before or after low tide or you’ll be sure get wet and see a lot of sea glass go back into the ocean because you were not as fast as the waves.
Find Sea Glass in Lahaina Cove
I found this spot when two children showed me their plastic bags full of sea glass shards. Most were brown and white. I went to the spot a few times, and there was always at least one person there looking for sea glass. I found a lot of brown sea glass, but I also found a few nice green ones.
Directions and Map
Pohaku Park is located in Kahana just off Lower Honoapiilani Road in Lahaina, Maui. See map below. The park has picnic tables, benches and BBQ stations. There is one port-o-toilet. There is also parking. Bring your snorkel gear if you like to swim. People report that they see turtles swimming close to shore.
