The bay's Hawaiian name is Keone o io.It was later named for the French explorer Captain Jean-Fran ois de Galaup, comte de La P rouse. In 1786, La P rouse surveyed and mapped the prominent embayment near the southern cape of Maui opposite the island of Kaho olawe. The bay is the site of Maui's most recent volcanic activity.The rounded peninsula that dominates the northern half of the bay and extends up the coast a short distance was formed about 900,000 years ago by an eruption of basaltic lava that originated in the southernmost landward expression of the Haleakala Southwest Rift Zone.show more
