This is a beautiful beach that anyone who visits Maui should make sure they check out. Great access to shopping and food right by the beach.

Great beach for relaxing, swimming & snorkelling, lots of places for food. Park at Whalers village and grab a little something in the mall to have free parking for 3 hours

This is one of my very favorite beach! It is easy accessible, parking accross the street, showers, easy in and out of water with no shore breaks or rocks and beautiful sandy beach. You can take a long walk. It’s beautiful!

This beach was steps outside our hotel and was very low-key and beautiful. It wasn't very large (in terms of depth) so you didn't have a ton of people around or behind you.

First off, it is a nice beach. Black rock provides a fairly reasonable chance at seeing a turtle (it is busy though) but you're limited with how for it is safe to snorkel around the point. Also, cliff jumping has become popular pretty close to...More
