Keawakapu Beach as a starting point

Approximately how many beaches north and south of Keawakapu Beach (for example, can we get as far as Sugar beach) could a family of four (active, with 2 kids 7 and 11) walk to while carrying a day's supplies to enjoy when we get there (ie. pupus and drinks for all, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, towels, etc.)

You could definitely walk behind the Kihei Surfside, across their beautiful green lawn, past the boat launch to Kam 3, and I guess to Kam 2 and Kam 1. But Sugar Beach is way down at the other end of South Kihei Road, if I am not mistaken.

Sugar beach would be out of the question unless your kids like doing marathons. It's 5 miles or more from Keawakapu.

Just south, and you could easily walk it down the beach, is Mokapu and Ulua. If you are feeling really robust, you could hike down to Wailea beach, in front of the Grand Wailea on the walkway. I think the best boogie boarding is going to be at one of the Kam beaches though. Snorkeling will be best at Mokapu/Ulua.

Between the boat ramp and Kam 3 and the lava outcrop between Kam 3 & Kam 2 you will find snorkeling. Yes Boogie boarding is usually good at Kam 3. We have boogie board at the south end of Keawalapu Beach also.

ABC store for snacks and drinks across the street from Kam 1.

Whaler Store for snacks and drinks and some other places to eat across the street from Kam 2. 808 Deli by Fred's Mex across from Kam 2 has large sandwiche, chips, cookie and drink in a cooler bag for the beach about $10, return the bag.

You would be further from food when you walk to Ulua. Wailea Beach would have the Grand Wailea and Four Seasons snack bars.

No car??? lots of places to park for free. If you have a car drive to Polo Beach to boogie board.
