Easy access and free parking next to the Westin. Most of the time we have found parking, but the parking lot might be full around noon. If it is really windy the sand might be blowing on the beach and the waves could a higher than normal – you might even get rolled during your entry and exit from the... More

Located between 2 resorts this beach park offers, free parking restrooms, but NO LIFEGUARD. Food can be found close by. Nice place to snorkel, swim or just lay on the beach.

This beach may not stand out as the most scenic, but it may very well be the most convenient. There is a covered area with picnic tables and bathrooms. There is a nice grass area if you don't feel like sitting in the sand. There is good snorkeling right out front and there are public showers. The parking lot can... More

Locals call this airport Beach because there used to be an airport there. Kahakili beach is a great beach for snorkeling as almost the entire bottom is rock and coral. It is not the best for wading or paddling as the bottom drops off quickly just a few feet out so the waves break right at the shoreline. Saw multiple... More

Big beautiful beach. Showers and a walkway. Nice sand and clean water. Easy parking. Has toilet and BBQ's. the surf was very ruff and was hard to keep yourself steady. I was knocked down and almost lost my hat and glasses. If you're kids are going keep a close eye on them.

This long beach has some of the calmest waters of the island. Snorlkeling can start less than 10 feet from the shore and is very accessible due a reasonable depth. On the down side it drops off pretty quickly and is not the best for timid swimmers.

It's a free beach, free parking and clean restrooms. It also has a large patch of grass to picnic if you don't want sand in your toes. If you arrive and start walking left of the ocean, about 3/4 down you will find the best BEACH BAR at the Royal Lahaina just a skip from the water. They allow you... More

Parking was completely stress free. There was plenty of room on the beach and we had a terrific time snorkeling. We spend a few hours here and will be back the next time we are in Maui.

Brother in law and I left the ladies & kids sleeping and made an early morning attempt. We had rental snorkel get and wanted to give it a try. Parking was empty at 7:30 am. Beach was also empty. We goofed up though. We went left, towards the rock wall in the distance. Saw some fish right at the rock... More
