Great beach on the Ritz Kapalua property. We swam morning and night - and enjoyed nearly every minute! The waves break right near the shore sometimes - and one of our young adults was mildly injured by the breaking surf (there also was a sign warning of this). Use caution right near the shore - we found it was more... More

This beach offers a lot of comfort for families who want to spend a good part of the day at the beach. It is located just north of Kapalua, off of Hwy. 30 (the turn off is on the left). It has a parking lot and it is a very picturesque beach. The sunsets are awesome. It is ideal for... More

Beautiful, small beach. Somewhat private even though there is a public parking lot and picnic tables. This area offers gorgeous views and is a great place to spend a relaxing day.

Spent 3 hours of the beach today. Some rough surf, but kids were still out on their boogie boards. Some shaded areas to the right of the lifeguard station. Also a public restroom and shower to de-sand.

Beautiful, peaceful spot. No snorkeling available and you can't really swim because the tide is pretty strong. Great place to bake but not much shade available so make sure you lather on the sunscreen!

Perhaps I've become a bit of a beach snob but I did not find this beach to be that spectacular and certainly not worthy of being a past recipient of America's Best Beach. The cliffs and view from the beach are absolutely gorgeous and there's no arguing that but the beach itself is rather small, the sand is not particularly... More

I was not happy when Kapalu moved in and forced this local beach to be moved to it's new location. However, I like this beach a lot better. There are showers, bathroom facilities, and life guards. The beach is fairly long and has a lot of soft sand. Nice waves at times for boogie boarding and surfing. Parking can get... More
