Every day, during sunset, torches are lit for the ceremony of Lele Kawa. According to the legend, the last chief of Maui, Kahekili (Thunderer), tested his spirit by diving from the sacred Pu’u Keka’a cliff (the Black Rock) into the Pacific Ocean. Since then, every evening a young diver reenacts this tradition at Kaanapali Beach. You can hear ancient Hawaiian chants and see the light of torches that surround the lagoon. As the diver reaches the top of Black Rock, he throws his torch into the ocean below and takes the spectacular dive. Don't miss the spiritual and beautiful ceremony on Maui.
