Beach park, surf site, Honokahua, Maui. Named for David Thomas Fleming (1881-1955). Born in Scotland but raised on Maui, Fleming became manager of Honolua Ranch in 1912 and was instrumental in converting the cattle ranch into a pineapple plantation. His home, Makaʻoiʻoi, completed in 1915, is now Pineapple Hill Restaurant. Maui Land and Pineapple Company provided the land for the beach park in 1975. The surf site is a shorebreak on a sandbar off the beach, but includes a board surf site on a small reef at the north end of the beach.
