Picture Postcard – Makena Bay Maui
Exotic flowers bloom in the shadow of volcanos throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
Makena Bay is located south of the town of Wailea on Maui’s southern section of the island. The Queen Emma Lily is named after the wife of Kamehameha IV whose legacy includes Queen’s Hospital in Honolulu. It’s interesting to note that the lily is not native to the Hawaiian Islands but has African origins.
