crystal clear water

A little crowded, but we were still able to find a spot. Warm water, crystal clear, great snorkelling at the northern end of the beach.

Family friendly white sand beaches, calm waves for easy snorkeling, swiming, and wading. Large lengths of undeveloped beaches fully accessible via the resorts or public park access.

If you don't mind a backdrop of monster hotels, this beach is for you. It's exquisitely maintained, has a beautiful view of the ocean, gentle incoming waves, not too overcrowded. For my experience of a Maui beach, it was a little too commercial feeling. But if you enjoy staying at luxury hotels and tourist watching, definitely visit this beach for... More

A very nice beach, but not the best one I have ever been. Right between the Sheraton, Maui Elderado condo, and Royal Kaanapali resort. There are gentle waves, definitely is not a snorkeling beach, so it is very good to read or walk along the mile long beach towards north.

This is the most beautiful beach on the island. Clean and offers great snorkeling. Many beaches aligned with parks and offer parking, showers and other amenities.

This area is really nice, although it has more rain than the south west beaches. The waves are much calmer here compared to the beach at the Honua Kai resort.

A definite must-visit beach for anyone! Go for sunset especially... spectacular! My mother and I went back multiple times in the week spent in Maui. Amazing.

Parking a bit limited, but a beautiful beach, plenty of picnic tables, bath room, and views. No disputing its rating as a top beach in the world. Couples, families, and seniors quietly enjoying the ocean, beach, grassy field, and views! We had a picnic lunch facing the ocean.
