One of my favourite labyrinths in Maui is found at Dragons Teeth Point, just north of Lahaina at Kapalua. This Chartres labyrinth is built on a black lava plain on the shore where the windward and leeward sides of the island meet.
Its location means that the winds and ocean spray can be ferocious. Sometimes the labyrinth is closed because it's simply too dangerous to walk there. But on the day we visited, everything was fine. You can see the ocean breakers hitting the sharp jagged rocks of the shore which give this spot its evocative name.
At the centre of the labyrinth, there was a little pile of stones and flowers left as offerings. It included some beautiful painted stones -- see the rainbow one? Some had Hawai'ian words painted on them, like wahine (woman) and kane (man).
Speaking of rainbows, there was a gorgeous one in the sky as we walked the labyrinth. Truly, this spot is a little piece of paradise!
