A nice long stretch of beautiful sandy beach, and close to Keihei also. In addition, it has two parking lots (one at either end of the beach), so it's usually fairly easy to get a spot to park. Also liked the fact that the Five...More

Keawakapu is a lovely beach in South Maui. Easy in and out of water with good snorkeling by reef on either end. Some turtles and colorful fish. One caution is there are no life guards at this beach.

Keawakapu beach goes on for over a mile in Wailea/Kihei region of Maui and is one of our long time favourite beaches. The only thing missing was a fawcet to wash the sand off your feet near Five Palms restaurant and Sarento's on the beach.

Best water to paddleboard you can see the fish swim by as you go around Black Rock. In the mornings the water is really awesome to enjoy. With Whalers Village right there you can refresh after the beach really easy.

Not sure which shave ice stand you mean, but I don't remember one within walking distance to Keawakapu. It is a bit of a walk from Kamaole 3 for instance, doable for a grownup but hard with kids or carrying beach gear... More
