Great beach to hang out on. Fantastic snorkeling. Many fish to see and seen turtles while snorkeling. Not a far walk from the road.

Go early in the morning and you may have the whole beach to yourself! I found sea urchins and shells and saw so many fish and sea turtles. Not crowded at all and so close to all the crowded tourist beaches. There are coves and...More

Loved this beach for being in it's natural state. There are no bathrooms or showers, but worth the visit. Parking is on the street with a short walk down stairs onto a sandy beach. Snorkeling and swimming were great without the crowds.

Slaughterhouse beach is very nice. The views are wonderful. But once you go to Kaanapali beach, everything else is a step down.

We love going to this beach every time we're in Maui. It's a fine beach because there aren't huge crowds and it has a large sand bottom so it's good for wading, swimming, playing in the waves, and the kids. You don't have to have...More

My family and I have been coming to Maui for 10+ years and we have snorkeled in almost every Bay; Kapaulua, Black Rock, Napili, up and down Kaanapali, Honolua, etc... and Slaughterhouse Beach consistently offers the best experience. Parking is extremely limited so this is...More

We parked on the roadside on Highway 30.and went down a flight of stairs (80 plus steps)with strong green color railing to reach this quiet beach flanked by rocky cliffs on each side. Aka Slaughterhouse Bay, it’s just right next to Honolua Bay. The water...More

The waves at Slaughterhouse can be quite big in November... it depends how good you are at Boogie Boarding. Snorkeling is better at Honolua Bay which is right ‘next door’ to Slaughterhouse. I’ve seen people snorkel at... More
