Kapalua Bay Sunset, Maui

Kapalua Bay Sunset, Maui

The sun sets in the distance as blue skies still reign and the ocean washes onto Kapalua Bay beach in bands of bubbly white and mirrored reflections of the sun meeting the Pacific.

Kapalua has a rich history stemming from originally seven different ahupua’a (traditional Hawaiian land divisions): Honokahua, Honokohau, Honokowai, Honolua, Kahana, Mahinahina, and Mailepai. In 1853, Dr. Dwight Baldwin was given a royal grant of 2,675 acres, which later grew to around 24,000 acres after several additional acquisitions. His combined land was called Honolua Ranch, later called Honolua Plantation, and eventually, Kapalua Resort, following the use of the land.

There are several beaches in the area, all extremely beautiful and well-cared-for in many respects.

About Rob DeCamp

I am a professional photographer living on Maui, in the State of Hawaii. I made my living shooting weddings, but now have shifted my energy to nature photography. What started as a hobby, has now become my passion. I love to explore nature, and capture the ever changing colors and shapes that I find. No matter how many times I go back to the same place, it never is the same. The lighting, the weather all change to give me a different feeling. I think that is what inspires me to keep shooting!
