Swimming in a sea cave.

You have to earn Maui's hidden treasures. You have to live here, make friends here, listen, watch, and spend time wandering lost in the jungle.  You have to be open to seeing the world with new eyes, open to saying yes instead of no, and ready to guard the hidden treasure you've been entrusted with.  Most of all you have to be patient because the treasures won't let you find them until you're ready for them.

Sweaty, scratchy, narrow jungle path.  The best kind.

Hiking across the top of an open ridge.

Fun, steep path to the rocky shoreline with ropes to assist.

The final reward. Deep, clear water and a cave worth swimming into.
