The beaches there couldn't be more beautiful, blue to turquoise sea, golden sand, gentle waves, not crowded at all. It´s my kind of beach! Just be careful with some rocks under the sea, but since the ocean is so transparent there it is very easy to spot them. Also if you are lucky you´ll see some giant green turtles swimming... More

The beach scene here is over crowded and pricey. Travelers should be aware that none of the resort fees include beach chairs.

A lovely beach to soak up the sun and watch the world go by. Plenty to do if you want to be more active with boat trips, para gliding, paddle board hire etc.

Beautiful beach with many amenities from the several major resorts that line the area. Was pretty crowded, although following the roads to areas further up the coast led to some nice quiet areas. Great for snorkeling and general relaxing at the beach!

It is so pristine, clean, and welcoming.....The reefs even at 5 pm are clear to experience the numerous amount of fish life. Turtles frequent this area as well. The wind gets up between 2-6 so you may want to stay inside or do something else but come back for the sunset as it is spectacular. I witnessed a lovely small... More

What we loved was how different the beach was from our Texas beach. Sand is courser. Breeze seems to keep the humidity low. Great snorkeling and calm waves. And TREES on the beach!

Top notch beach with loads of snorkling. Lots of fish. It was a bit of a cloudy/misty day so water was a bit cloudy. Parking was bleak..but we got lucky and found someone leaving on the main rd. Worth the hike from the road. Great beach..will hopefully go back.

in front of the Westin Resort Villas. It is a nice beach to start with when your first arrive but once you are in a day or two one will want to go up to Napili Bay (Kapalua) or down to Whalers Village to experience different beachs.
