The wife and I loved this beach. You can body surf (it is a sandy beach) as well as snorkel. Really close in are some awesome areas that we snorkeled and saw several turtles as well as numerous fish and other sea life. If you are on Maui I would highly recommend checking it out.... and bring your snorkel gear!

We stayed about five minutes away from the beach and we loved it for the convenience and the waves! It was great for boogie boarding and even snorkeling! Two different turtle spottings took place along the rocks and some great photos and videos were gotten! We will miss this beach!

Nice little walk to get here, but it was lovely and the water was amazing. Although we didn't stay at the hotel, they comp us with chairs. Great people all around! and they played reggae music nearby - yayy!

Not our favorite beach but still worth a visit. There are bathrooms, showers, bbq's, and picnic areas. Parking is plentiful. It's at the end of the beach path but it is positioned around some nice resort properties. Nothing negative to say but there are closer beaches (or further ones) with more interest.

Great parking, and wonderful spot to enjoy the ocean. The bathroom and showers are nice, and you can walk on the trails to the other resorts when you get wanderlust or are hungry.

We went here originally to go snorkeling and boogie boarding, but we didn't see any fish. Under the shade tree we found huge tree thorns that even poked through my flip flops on numerous occasions. No facilities here.

Pol is a good spot for whale watching from late December to the end of March. We have done it during all those times. Body surfing is also very good at this spot and waves can be fun. Do keep from the edges where rock formations can cause danger during riptides.
