The island of Maui is home to some of the most amazing

beaches. Some beaches offer swimming all year round,

while others are best for surfing or snorkeling

during certain times of the year. Depending on

where you choose to stay, there are always some

famous beaches nearby.

West Maui beaches

If you drive along the west coast of Maui from Lahaina

to Kapalua, you’ll see many breathtaking beaches

along the coast. Kaanapali Beach will offer

you over three miles of white sand with a variety

of watersports, including surfing, sailboating,

and even catamaran rides. On the north end of

the beach is Black Rock, which is well known for

snorkeling.

Visitors like the sandy beach at Napili Bay,

because there are no high rise buildings around,

and the bay is protected well from waves. The

Kapalua Resort in west Maui is home to Kapalua

Beach, Oneloa Bay Beach, and the D.T. Fleming

Beach.

South Maui Beaches

The rule with Hawaii and Maui is that the further

south you travel, the less crowded the beaches

will be.

Kihei offers you a series of beaches along the

six mile coastline, some even offering lifeguards,

restrooms, and picnic areas. Polo Beach and

Wailea Beach offer both restrooms and equipment

rentals. Or, if you prefer a more secluded beach,

you should visit Maluaka Beach at the Maui

Prince Hotel – where you may even encounter some

green sea turtles.

A few miles past the Maui Prince Hotel is the

Big Beach of Makena, which is one of the best

beaches on Maui. As the name implies, the beach is

quite large, and best of all – empty. It offers

white sand, picnic facilities, and even restrooms.

East Maui Beaches

The beaches of East Maui are unlike others in

Hawaii. Surround by lush scenery, the beaches are

secluded, scenic, and very colorful.

Hamoa Beach is a must visit if you plan to visit

East Maui. As you approach the beach from the

main road, you’ll walk past colorful plants and

palm trees surrounding Hamoa Beach. Just off Hana

Highway is Hana Bay Beach, which offers black

volcanic sand.

The Red Sand Beach is difficult to get to, you’ll

need to find a narrow path along the coast. The

beach offers plenty of swimming and snorkeling,

and you should be the only one there – which is

great for those looking for privacy. Even though

it is hard to get to, Red Sand Beach is truly one
