Maui Beaches . . . . .

South Side Beaches

Known to the locals as "Big Beach", it is often designated as THE beach to visit. At two-thirds of a mile long, and approximately 100 yards wide, this beach is very popular on the weekends. A great place to snorkle, body board, and swim. Portable restrooms, picnic tables, and paved parking is available.

West Side Beaches

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.

Windward Beaches

Kanaha is one of the premier Wind and Kite surfing beaches in the world. Breath-taking views of the West Maui Mountains and ‘Îao Valley await visitors, a swim, a picnic in the shade of the tall trees flanking the beach, or game of beach volleyball can be enjoyed as well. Street signs along Amala Place point the way: the beach is within walking distance of Kahului Airport and easily-accessible from Hâna Highway (36) with ample parking available.
