Maui Beaches . . . . .
Palauea Beach is located just south of the Kea Lani Hotel. This is a great beach for snorkeling and scuba diving where you'll find shallow caves and crevices, and lava arches. The area is populated with reef fish, and turtles. Often small white tipped reef sharks and sometimes an eagle ray will swim through the area.
AKA "Canoe Beach" this is part of the long stretch of sand known as Kaanapali Beach, but you won't find hotels or condos fronting the shoreline at Hanakao'o. Do expect to find canoes -- several canoe racing clubs use the park. Facilities include picnic tables, barbeque grills, restrooms and showers.
