Why Mai Poina 'Oe La'u Beach?

This beach is approximately 1/2 of a mile and has nice soft sand with minimal shade on the beach. On the south end there are palm trees.

What is the Beach Vibe?

It is a clean, family beach with no lifeguards on duty and plenty of room. This beach is rarely crowded 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.

Best Time of Day to Visit?

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.

Are Fires Allowed at the Beach?

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.
