This is a wonderful beach. We enjoyed walking in the ocean as the waves hit the shore. Plenty of shoreline to enjoy along with water activities, shops, restaurants, and whale-watching.

Excellent beach. Usually gentle surf, safe for kids. Abundant snorkeling over coral reef near shore. Abundant concessions for paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling, etc.

Beautiful beach with roaring waves. Need to be careful with little ones. Nice walkway along the beach. Beautiful view of wildlife (whales and sea turtles). Compared to Wailea where the area reminded me more of a neighborhood in California or South Florida this beach area had a nice laid back feel and was very close to shopping amenities as well...

Awesome beach front strolling. Massive whale activity (prime season) Within the distance (7 to 8 miles) you can see Lanai and Molokai islands

Spent time on this beach every day of our stay. Loved the Whalers Village shopping center just off the beach.

Multiple resorts along this beach make it very busy but there is plenty of room along the nearly mile Long Beach. Black rock had good snorkeling and cliff jumping.

If you go all the way to the far end of the beach then the snorkeling is great! My son's loved playing in the little "caves" on that end as well. It was terrific shade. The scenery is so beautiful! If you exit the beach at the stairs next to the rental shop (which is also at the far end)... More

The beach is very beautiful, but its a highly touristic area, hundreds of resorts, tall buildings by the beach. I prefere more secluded, nature abundant experiences. not my cup of tea. There are many other amazing beaches for sun and swim in Maui, like Big Beach, for instance.
