Discover Your Favorite BeachMaui

Maui has a myriad of prized beaches. Picking your favorite isn’t just about beauty and utility—it’s also about safety. Lifeguards protect just nine of Maui’s 81 BEACHES.

D.T. FLEMMING BEACH PARK is situated on sand dunes at mile marker 31 on Highway 3, east of Kapalua. The park actually begins on the 16th hole of Kapalua’s golf course.

H.A. BALDWIN PARK is located on the Hana Highway between Spreckelsville and Lower Pa‘ia, where bodyboarders and bodysurfers are drawn to the consistent wave action.

HANA BEACH PARK is a favorite with local families.

HANAKAO‘O BEACH PARK (or CANOE BEACH), located at the south end of Ka‘anapali Beach, is a launching site for many of the island’s outrigger canoe teams, and swimmers, snorkelers and picnickers make heavy use of this beach.

HO‘OKIPA BEACH PARK on Hana Highway, 2 miles past Pa‘ia, is known as a world-class windsurfing destination, though its rocky beach and strong ocean currents make it better for board sailing and sunbathing than swimming.

KAMA‘OLE BEACH PARKS (I, II, III) in Kihei are good for swimming, snorkeling, bodyboarding and sunbathing.

KANAHA BEACH PARK in Kahului stretches about a mile along the shoreline and provides good swimming for children, windsurfers, kiteboarders and outrigger paddlers.
