This beach is approximately 1/4 of a mile and has nice soft sand with minimal shade on the beach. On the south end there is a grassy area shaded by palm trees with picnic tables and showers available. The restrooms are located in the middle of the beach toward S. Kihei Road.
It is a clean, family beach with lifeguards on duty and plenty of room. This beach is rarely crowded (with the exception of spring break) and has great views of the West Maui Mountains. The beach entering the water has a nice slow gradation which makes it perfect for little ones and adults alike.
The waves are nice and smooth which makes for a great morning beach. In the summer months, the swell can come up and bring 1-3 foot waves in the afternoon. Be careful in the fall months as larger waves have been known to suddenly appear with the afternoon swell.
No fires are allowed; use a small grill or hibachi in the park areas and keep them off the beach. Hot coals hidden in the sand can smolder for hours and creating a real danger to barefoot beachgoers the next day.
