6 minutes away is its partner, Mokule’ia Bay, with a stunning cast of colorful sea life and an abundance of coral walls and channels. Though clarity is said to be intermittent, the water was translucent when I went, perhaps because no tourists have been in since March. Plenty of shade and soft sand to recover on, because you owe it to yourself to swim as far along the north point as you can ( to your right as you face the ocean). The water gets clearer and clearer, and the coral more profuse. Sure, you could wait around an hour or two to grab a space at Honolua, or you could make better use of your previous down-time.

This is a regular stop for my husband and I during our trips to Maui, he needs to get his body surfing in! A lovely little bay with a pretty strong break. I saw a handful of kids playing on the beach but their parents weren’t letting them go in the water. Plenty of boogie boards and body surfers. Make sure you carry in what you need, there are no washroom or rinse off facilities and parking is definitely at a premium.
Worth a couple hours if someone in your travel group enjoys playing in the waves.

This beach is just a 10 minute drive from Kapulua, but if you can find a parking spot and descend the steps, you will find a beautiful crescent beach, protected from the wind and with incredible views.

Not crowded at all (due to limited parking), with no "facilities or vendors", just a quiet area, with families, surfers and boogie boarders. As a family, with teenagers, it was just right to hang out on one of the few beaches, in February, where the wind was not blowing sand.

Don't let the name fool you.... although it's named slaughterhouse, when you get there you feel pretty close to heaven.

Quiet and less touristy than the mainstream beaches around Kapalua, this beach offers the best of both worlds: snorkeling and boogie boarding. The beach is best from mid-morning to early afternoon. The enjoyment evaporates when late afternoon winds begin to kick up sand. For boogie boarding, stay to the left (west). For snorkeling, enter the water from the right (east) and make you way to the protected cove just beyond the rocks that stick out above the water. Inside that cove, I saw lots of fish and two sea turtles. If you are a good swimmer, continue beyond the point on the right into Honolua Bay. The downside of this beach is that is has neither restroom facilities, nor a tap to wash your feet when you exit.

Several of the recommended beaches in Maui were marred (in my opinion) by crowds and by development (condos, etc.) right behind the beach. Slaughterhouse beach is free from both of those. When we were there, there was only one other family at one end of the beach and a sunbathing green sea turtle at the other end.

This beach has less people as the gatekeep is limited parking, but you can find spaces throughout the day. A quarter mile walk down some stairs and paved path will get you to this gem of a beach. Half the day most is in the shade due to its orientation, but you can spread out to sunny spots. There are waves which you can body surf on, watch for rocks, and the sand is great for little kids and adults alike. Cool rock features to the far left of the beach if you want to walk about.

What a gorgeous beach! The scenery is lovely, and the waves aren’t overpowering. There are rocks and tide pools to explore along either end, and the snorkeling was phenomenal. We did a snorkel tour yesterday to Molokini Crater, and honestly I think we saw more types of fish tooling around Slaughterhouse, not to mention a TON of turtles. As others have mentioned, there aren’t bathrooms or food vendors, but that wasn’t an issue for us. It’s also nice that it’s set back from the road, and there’s nice shade available as well. Parking was a little tricky, so visiting early in the day or later in the afternoon would be a plus. I could easily have spent all day there.

Perfect beach for those who like to snorkel (husband and I) and those who don't (teens). Unlike Honolua Bay, there is great boogie boarding and a lovely, sandy beach. It was a nice calm day, so we snorkeled out around the point into Honolua Bay as well (saw a large eagle ray out at the point). Once the currents picked up later in the morning, we stayed in the bay and explored all the nooks and crannies. Tons of turtles and fish, and eel and octopus. Coral is less the star here, but there are many other snorkel locales with better coral. The large, healthy fish population is definitely the highlight here. Great visibility in the summer months.

Beautiful beach and an easy walk down the stairs. Although it was windy the day we were there, it was somewhat protected and very enjoyable. Parking could be an issue but we were there when Hawaii had just opened up with it's pretesting program so parking was not a problem.

Worth it. Rocking waves not super deep. Wild cocks and chics roaming the beach within reach of your towels. Locals and tourists together. Really loved the wild waves and it had some shade for some sunburn relief. My toddler loved the flat parts. More ideal for adults or older kids with the rowdy waves. Very scenic for a family photo on the cliffs.
