"Honolua Bay"
(Belinda Leigh Galleries image 28 of 47)
Honolua Bay is accepted as one of the world’s best-known surf spots, but only for the experienced surfer. The Bay as painted here is not always disturbed with such powerful surf. Normally the waves break out beyond the bay where the surfers ride them. At these times divers and snorkelers who cherish the protected reef and all of its incredible inhabitants frequent the bay. The waters are crystal clear and the black rock beach is your only challenge to greet when entering the waters.

This painting is an expression of the power of the sea, as with very high tides it can mark its path all the way into the bay, and make snorkeling impossible. The short walk from the road to enter the bay is an experience to be treasured by nature lovers, as you see the thick, rich greenery of varied types, growing from the ground up and from the trees down. The sun paints beautiful highlights as it struggles to get through the thick growth and light the path. All of this is commonly found in the rich mountainous territory of this Kapalua treasure. The West Maui Mountains of Kapalua are highly prized and protected.
