I came here to scuba dive. It was a nice clear beach. Lots of free parking available, picnic tables, grills, restrooms and places to wash up after the beach. The waters are calming here than some of the other beaches I visited in Maui.

A wonderful public beach facility nestled between resorts. If you show up early, you can get a shaded parking spot. Parking aside, the snorkeling is great. This morning I saw some spotted eagle rays among the normal delights. Also, and this may be my all-time...More

The beach is as good as Ka'anapali but without the crowd, and plenty of parking. Also known as Old Airport Beach (Maui's west airport used to be here) Kahekili beach has a long sandy shoreline with the reef close to shore, making it perfect for...More

Lots of parking if you get here before 9. A lot of coral and fish to see. We saw at least 50 dolphins swimming by in the afternoon. Plenty of shade if you suck up to brush and trees to the left as you face...More
