On my quest to see most beaches West and South, I found this beach (bay) to be one of the greatest. A little earlier, we left D T Fleming beach due to the murky waters and a shoreline laden with tree limbs. We progressed around...More

Oneloa is a beautiful, almost secluded beach. It felt like only a handful of people knew about it. Very quiet and serene. No bathrooms, but there is a small free parking lot. We loved our afternoon there.

We hiked here from the Montage and found amazing waves. Very rocky, wear shoes. My husband broke his toe! On windy days the sand is a painful spray.

The snorkeling was just OK this time, but the bodysurfing was great. I loved the Kapalua trail beach walk.

On a past visit we discovered Oneloa Bay while walking the Kapalua Coastal Trail. It is a beautiful stretch of beach accessible down lots of steps which has never been crowded when we have gone. There are no lifeguards or facilities. Parking area off Ironwood...More
