Waioka Pond Trail

Waioka Pond Trail is well known by locals. This is more of a “secret” spot and isn’t well marked. It can also be prone to flash floods. This is imperative to know if you visit this spot on the list of Maui elopement locations. That being said, if you’ve ever dreamed of saying your vows and then cliff jumping into the water to seal the deal, this is an amazing spot for you. Alternatively, not all locations on this list need to be used as just ceremony locations. This is a gorgeous spot for seriously unique couple photos. Wether you just want to explore, cliff jump, or get in the water. Under water photography is so fun, and such a unique way to capture photos and memories together. See it here!

Last on my list of Maui elopement locations is this gorgeous waterfall. If you don’t mind getting your feet wet, or even want to go for a swim, this is an awesome location for you. It’s only 0.3 miles, so this is a good spot for couples who don’t want to do very much hiking. This is a very popular location and would be best explored at sunrise to avoid crowds.
