  • beautiful beach nearby to the Fairmont Kea Lani where we stayed. Fabulous little hidden coves along this route  more »
  • no facilities but one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui. Large turtles as well. Good boogie board spot for kids.  more »
  • Enjoyed this beach very much as it was not that busy in comparison to some others in the area. Snorkeling was great with lots of turtle activity. Short walk away from the main road.  more »

  • Gorgeous, secluded beach but it has luxury private residences along it, so feels a bit like you're intruding on someone's personal beach. There is one empty lot between the other house lots that contains trees and a sandy path to access the beach. Make sure you wear shoes on the path, as it's riddled with thorns from the trees. We laid out on the area in front of this lot, as it didn't feel like we were laying out in someone's backyard. We didn't get a chance to snorkel because of rain, but it's supposed to be good around the rocks.
  • Ok beach... has a lot of thorns and NO where to go to the restrooms shower
  • Great beach for snorkelling!
