Lone Tree-Photo by Shawn M. Kent

The Lone Tree near Pa’ako Cove, situated just south of Big Beach along Makena Road in Maui, is a captivating subject for photographers seeking to capture the raw beauty of nature. This scraggly, bare bonsai-like tree stands as a testament to resilience on a rocky outcrop at the edge of the picturesque cove. Its unique and dramatic appearance creates an alluring contrast against the azure waters, pristine sands, and the vibrant Hawaiian sky. Pa’ako Cove itself is a quiet little haven with a small beach surrounded by lava rock, making it perfect for snorkeling. The lone tree is especially photogenic during sunset, adding a golden glow to your compositions. Keep in mind that parking along Makena Road is limited, so you may need to walk a short distance to reach this enchanting location.
