L Beaches/Sights

"Big Beach" Makena

Very large sandy beach. Waves can be large and rough here. Popular bodysurfing spot. Very crowded on weekends- a local favorite.
directions Directions

"Secret Cove" Beach

Well, the secret is out and this formerly private cove is now one of the most popular spots for weddings and wedding photos. It's still once of the most amazingly beautiful little coves on Maui and if you're driving by, it's a great spot to stop to take some spectacular photos. If you're going near sunset, stop by to see the lineup of brides and grooms, often 2-4 groups are here. A gorgeous spot for a picnic out on the point- we saw a pod of hundreds of dolphins once!
directions Directions

Charley Young Beach

This is the closest sandy swimming beach to the house. There is a public parking lot at the corner of Ilili Road and S. Kihei Road, across the street from the Maui Vista condo complex.
directions Directions

Kamaole 2 Beach

Another great sandy swimming beach. No parking lot, but there is on-street parking. Lifeguard and bathrooms.
directions Directions

Kamaole 3 Beach

This popular beach park has playground and large grassy lawn as well as 2 parking lots so it's very popular with local residents as well as visitors. Lifeguards and bathrooms.
directions Directions

Kamaole One Beach

Great sandy swimming beach with lifeguard and bathrooms. Small public parking lot on oceanside of road as well as a larger unpaved dirt parking lot across the street nest to the ABC Store.
directions Directions

Keawakapu Beach

Great family-friendly beach with 3 different parking areas (north end, middle, and south end). Public parking lots at the middle and south ends. You can walk from this beach (south) to the paved Wailea Beach Walk that goes in front of all the high-end Wailea resorts.
directions Directions

La Perouse Bay

After driving through the lava fields from Maui's last volcanic eruption (probably 1500-1600AD), stop at this picturesque bay for some photos. Please note that the entire Ahihi Kinau Reserve is close until 2014, so you can only drive straight through the lava area (no stopping to hike or explore).
directions Directions

Maluaka Beach

Beautiful sandy swimming beach in front of the Makena Beach Resort.
directions Directions

Parking for Polo Beach and Wailea Beach Path

This is the public parking lot at the South end of the Wailea Beach Path. To get here, take Wailea Alanui Dr. and turn right right after the Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel, then right into the large public parking lot at the Polo Beach Club condos.
directions Directions

Polo Beach

Great sandy beach with bathrooms above (no lifeguards). Often has good bodyboarding for older kids (at times the ocean might be too rough for younger kids but you can also walk to the other end of the beach in front of the Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel where it may be calmer).
directions Directions

Poolenalena Beach

One of our "secret" favorites- park in the public parking lot and walk down to the beach and then, instead of staying on main beach, turn right and walk over the rocks in front of the estate to the gorgeous beach to the right which is very private (but still public) and large.
directions Directions

Snorkel Spot: Five Graves/Five Caves

From the Maui Travel Guide: "This area has an easy entry into the ocean making it great for beginner snorkelers. The visibility is best on the North side. Very minimal beach but it is very picturesque. The snorkeling is spectacular at Five Graves and snorkel boats anchor just off these shores to bring visitors to enjoy some of Maui’s best snorkeling and diving. There are large underwater caves to explore and many turtles.

Makena Alanui next to Makena Surf."
directions Directions

Ulua/Mokapu Beach

2 sandy swimming beaches (bathrooms but no lifeguards) in front of Wailea Beach Walk. Popular beginner scuba spot. Take Wailea Alanui Road and turn right in to the "Ulua/Mokapu Beach" public parking lot right after the new Andaz Hotel.
directions Directions

Wailea Beach Path

Beautiful vistas from this 1 1/2 mile paved coastal beach path in front of the high-end resorts. A great place for an early morning walk/run or sunset stroll. During whale season (late November to late April) you will often spot whales from here, as well. Park at either end (Ulua/Mokapu Beach public parking on the north end or the public parking at Polo Beach, right after the Fairmont Kea Lani resort on the south end).
directions Directions

808 Deli

Great sandwiches for beach, right in the heart of South Kihei beaches.
directions Directions

Cafe O Lei and Da Kitchen

Cafe O Lei has great lunches and dinners. Lunch is very affordable ($10), dinner is pricey. Da Kitchen is a "fast food" or takeout local favorite and has huge Hawaiian style plate lunches ($10). The chicken katsu plate is enough for 2 to share.
directions Directions

Caffe Ciao at the Fairmont Kea Lani

Great Italian deli with sandwiches, paninis, and prepared deli food. Wonderful desserts (you can watch the hotel bakers at work behind the back wall of the deli). We often stop here to pick up picnic lunch before heading to Polo Beach. If stopping here before beach, it's easiest to park at the public parking for Polo beach and then walk up to the deli through the hotel grounds than to park twice.
directions Directions

A must-try while staying at the Bliss Beach House! Zagat rated and voted best fish tacos on island. Very casual, surfboard picnic tables. Affordable ($9-$12)!
