This is a really nice cove with relatively calm water. It gets deep pretty quickly so its fun to swim around in. Since it is in a cove it is not overly windy like a lot of other beaches in Maui. There are a LOT...More

You park up top and walk down a lot of steps to this somewhat secluded beach. You need to bring all your food and gear, and there are no bathrooms down at the beach, but you'll be rewarded with great views and less crowds. Also,...More

Went snorkeling there. I'm old and had some trouble carrying all my gear thru the heavy waves. But it was well worth it.

15-foot high waves, beautiful scenery. Not for beginner swimmers but a great beach to relax on. A few rocks in the surf and a wicked undertow, so watch out.

I was looking for a snorkeling spot and found this beach instead. It's located in a pretty cove and not too crowded. What's not to like?

Stumbled across this beach on our visit to Maui. A short walk down some stairs and you are at the most amazing, quiet beach. Great snorkelling spot, was very safe for the kids. Saw turtles while snorkelling and even when just standing in the lovely,...More

Great secluded cove; shallow, sandy shoreline... big breaking waves so make sure you’re a strong swimmer if the waves are breaking hard. Parking is limited so arrive early.
