  • Beautiful beach with warm water. Right in front of our hotel (Waldorf Astoria). Thoroughly enjoyed because it was whale birthing season and we could see them from the shore/restaurant.  more »

  • Very nice public beach, extremely popular and touristy. Easy parking, restrooms, and shower. Waves are usually manageable. You can also pay for umbrella service from the resort. You'll see many turtles here, as they like to ride the surf in. Most people don't even realize the turtles are swimming a few feet from them. If you do see them, please leave them alone.
  • A very pretty beach with nice golden sand. A good size with very small waves the day that I was there. We went out snorkeling bit didn't see as much fish as we saw on some of the other beaches in Maui. Water was not really clear late in the afternoon.
