Scenic beaches near Lahaina

We would like recommendations for a scenic beach near Lahaina for an older couple looking for creature comforts, bathrooms, ample parking, etc. We will have a rental car for 5 days.

I would suggest Kahikili Beach, aka Airport beach, Kapalua or Napili. All very nice.

We loved Kapalua Beach. Get there early for the best parking. There is a grass area adjacent to the sand with shade which is nice here.

DT Fleming is also a good one with picnic tab;es and a lifeguard tower. :)

Aloha,

Another vote for Kapalua although it will be about a 20 min drive for you. Napili Bay is one of my favorite places in the world but it does not have ample parking.

We are looking for a nice beach near where the cruise ship docks in lahaina. We will consider taking a cab. Just don't want to do beach day shore excursion from the ship due to expense and crowds.

Thanks

When you get to the dock, make a right and walk past the Old Courthouse, ruined fort, the elementary school, and you will quickly be at a beach right in front of Pacific'o and I'o restaurants, 505 marketplace and the Hokulea Canoe Hale (house). There are often chaise loungers put out for tourists. There's a Whaler's General Store there too.

From Kapalua Beach, take a walk along the Coastal trail past the Kapalua Residences and across to Oneloa Beach (also called Ironwoods Beach). The walk is beautiful and Oneloa is a gorgeous stretch of beach that is almost always empty. Or if you want to drive to it, take the Lower Hanoapiilani road up through Kapalua and park in the small lot outside the Ironwoods gated community. From the lot you'll see a small path down to the beach.
