Magnificent

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.

Yes I said Turtles. Everywhere.. We counted at least 20 different turtles while we were snorkeling at this beach. What a memorable experience. Our grandchildren said this was their favorite beach..

Enjoyed our visit here as there was a little shade. Loved that we could walk to it from the Four Seasons where we were staying. There were chairs from the Andaz but it's a big beach with plenty of room so it didn't feel crowded.

Mokapu and Wailea Beaches are basically side by side along the famous southwest coast of Maui, which is generally known for great beaches and snorkeling. It was a little crowded, but still plenty of room to lie on the sand, snorkel, and just bob around in the waves. Clean bathrooms and showers, and close proximity to the fancy Wailea shopping...

Another charming little stretch of beach with nothing out of the ordinary to make it stand out from all the other gems. There is public parking and public access. Nice sandy beach, not crowded (in September, 2014), and pleasant surroundings.

Another gorgeous Wailea Beach -- just be prepared for the prolific number of condo/hotel guests who frequent this area and use the walking trails.

This beach sits in front of the Andaz hotel. The hotel provides chairs and towels for their guests. The beach seems to be mostly hotel guests, which keeps it clean, quiet and beautiful. There is no hotel service on the beach (food or beverage). The hotel has various water sports rental equipment and a talented group of "beach fun" professionals... More

The new Andaz hotel has taken over what used to be a nice beach. Now it is just covered with their umbrellas, loungers, kayaks, etc. Hardly anywhere for non-guests to sit. Bye, bye paradise.

After spending a lot of time at some other beaches known for snorkeling, we tried Mokapu Beach for the first time. What an awesome beach! Great coral reef that has lots of fish, and other sea creatures to watch, even an occasional sea turtle! Very pretty beach to sit and relax, not a huge shore break makes it great for... More
