Mokapu is a nice little sandy beach which has lava rocks and swaying palm trees in the background. My husband and I were married there at sunset (on September 8). We had a gorgeous sunset and there were very few people on the beach. While there are plenty of people on the beach during the day(largely from the Andaz resort),... More

Really nice, long beach, with some high surf due to Kilo. Fronts the Andaz Great for early morning walks and watching morning surfers and knee boards

Mokapu Beach shares parking and access with the more popular Ulua beach. These side by side beaches are both beautiful, but offer different experiences. Ulua has great snorkeling and more shade, and as a result, a lot more people and small children. (See those reviews for more details). If you are looking for something more serene, as you head toward... More

Mokapu is a small but beautiful beach located in the Wailea area. It hasn't been discovered by most of the tourists yet so head there if your looking for some peace and quiet. Snorkeling has been good on the two occasions we visited.

Mokapu Beach marks the northern-end of the Wailea Beach Path. This is another very nice beach on Maui in Wailea area.

This is a beautiful stretch of beach. It features easy access and isn't nearly as crowded as the neighboring Ulua. It has unfortunately gotten a bit more crowded since Andaz opened, but I still highly recommend it.

This is part of my daily walk from the ManaKaiMaui Hotel to the Andaz. From this long stretch of beach you will have to leave the beach here and go onto the hotel walks. You would have to bring your own beach chairs but then you can enjoy beautiful views, snorkeling and small sea life among The black rocks. I... More

This really is the most perfect beach on Maui with soft sand, smooth bottoms, and gentle waves if any. There is ample parking at the side of the Andaz hotel.

Compared to other beaches on the island, this one is short and narrow. There is nothing wrong with it and perfectly nice to sit on. But it is far cry from the beautiful beaches in other parts of the world.
