Another nice beach for hanging out or swimming. The view is beautiful. Parking was easy, but we went on a Friday.

It is packed with endless lines of chairs, umbrellas and people. Very busy, hard to find a place to "land" where you don't feel like you are being encroached upon. If you want peaceful, this is not it. The view is ok, but two beaches up or down is better. There are far more pretty beaches with fewer people to... More

Can be a bit crowded sometimes but the beach is perfect. I like how this island is not as windy as Ohau.. Sand blowing in your face all the time at North shore is nice and all but this beach is pristine. I agree its one of the nicest in the world!!!

I just mentioned it in another review about Maui, but this beach is not the best beach by far of Maui. It is nice, yes, soft sand, beautiful water, but there are so many people here that I would not come here just for this.

Soft sand, absence of rocks and coral, nice waves, clean water which was the perfect temperature. Fairly constant trade winds keeps temperature bearable on sunny days. claimed to be a "white hand' beach but it is not. It is a yellow sand beach, so the water is a bluish-grey like all yellow sand beaches. Very nice and very pretty.

Many turtles to see if you go out a bit by the reef. This is the best beach in Maui by far. I love the views and how clean it is. Make sure you bring your body board your kids will love to do it

This place is fantastic. I must go back. Remember to bring sun block... the sun will roast you out there.
