One perk of living in Maui is the free swimming at the beach and in public pools. There are three pools in Kahului, all with their own unique features.
Kahului Pool next to Salvation Army is the smallest of three but features a deep end and salt water, heated. The one in the park is cold and shallow but very quiet. My favourite is the Olympic-sized Sakamoto Pool on the way to Wailuku (after the College). Get there early before the schools hawk several lanes for their classes and competitions.
For lap swimmers like me, what is more heavenly than to swim outdoors under the big blue skies?
- Lifeguards on duty
- Clean and clear waters
Here’s a webpage of the various pools, locations, and hours of opening. I might visit each of them and see if the hours are still correct. The pool hours are updated daily on a voicemail recording at tel: (808) 270 8208.
