I've watched the popularity of this beach grow over the years. It used to be a well kept secret before the Westin Villas came here (it used to be the local airport). Great swimming along this long stretch of great beach. Snorkeling is great in...More

A wonderful public beach facility nestled between resorts. If you show up early, you can get a shaded parking spot. Parking aside, the snorkeling is great. This morning I saw some spotted eagle rays among the normal delights. Also, and this may be my all-time...More

Highly recommended by Maui books, this small beach has all of the amenities you need. Plenty of shade, restrooms, pavillion, and good place to go snorkeling. Parking is plentiful, but you need to get there early.

This was one of our top beaches. Ample parking, showers, restrooms. We saw spotted rays swimming out front as well as about 15 dolphins. Something we were not expecting. Great for the whole family

This beach was only a few minutes from our condo so we gave it a try. There is parking here but it does fill up. There are also bathrooms and a shower. It is a good size beach so it doesn't tend to feel too...More

Yes, I'm fairly certain SUPs can be rented from the activity hut in front of the Maui Kaanapali Villas just south of the park.
