  • Hubby went body boarding. Nice sandy beach. Great for surfing or boogie boarding. Big waves. Super long flight of stairs to get to beach but WORTH IT! :)

  • Beautiful quiet beach. There were only a handful of people there when we went so it really feels like you have an oasis to yourself. We enjoyed this beach much more than the ones by the busy resort...

  • I cannot say enough about this beach! It is the best beach I have ever visited and we went nearly every day while we were in Maui. Every time we snorkeled we saw multiple turtles and one time we even saw an octopus. Four out of the seven times that we were there there was a turtle just laying on the beach sunning. We always went around sunset and the sunsets were absolutely stunning. Picture perfect. And maybe we just got lucky, but every time we went it was also not packed at all. It also gave us more of a low-key vibe than any of the beaches near the resorts. A lot of times we saw people playing volleyball or having a bonfire. It was just truly all-around my favorite beach. I will say that we went in the beginning of summer/the off-season. So that may have been why There were less people. And the fact that we also only ever went around sunset time probably played a part too. I wouldn’t consider this the calmest area that we snorkeled in, but it was totally worth it. The waves were a bit rougher also, but not to the point where I felt on safe. I can’t wait to go back someday.
  • Amazing beach. Access to beach comes with a good amount of stairs so pack light. Those taking coolers down did not look happy. Amazing snorkeling out to the right and around the point. Little kids do not need to worry about the beach falling off fast and can play quite a ways out. The waves coming in were small and our little ones had a blast playing in them. Can get pretty windy here. Folded one of our umbrellas. Try and grab a spot back in the trees. Seemed to be less wind there but was further from the waters edge
