Maui Beaches . . . . .
Hiding behind the Westin Maui Prince Hotel is Malauka Beach. With hard to find parking lots at both ends, it may be one of the better "hidden" spots on the island. Malauka provides a nice grassy area, picnic tables, and public restrooms and showers. The Maui Prince concession stand and beach rental is also conveniently located just off of the beach.
This is a great little seaside park with a gorgeous view across Lahaina Roads to the islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i, and it's also a popular destination for surfers when the waves are up. Unfortunately, much of the shoreline in this section has been "protected" or "stabilized" with seawalls and revetments ... a strategy that inevitably causes beaches to be washed away. Still, this is a good park for picnics, and for whale watching in the winter season.
