  • At the end of the road, a nature reserve for diving where you can observe the fish and coral in a beautiful water very clear. You should not miss either to go walking in the path of frozen lava flows.

  • This beach is yuuuuge. And gorgeous. Stay for sunset. Bring a surfboard or a volleyball net. Bring some beers to crack open with the boys or a towel to tan or a blanket for a picnic with your date. If you like long walks on the beach, this place is perfect for that as it's not that crowded either.
  • A large, sandy beach near Kihei. The waves here are not too strong, so it's a good place for a swim. As it's sandy, not the right place for snorkeling, if you're into that. Sunsets here are very nice because the beach is facing West, so you have the sun setting on the ocean with the beach as foreground. Parking is quite limited, can get difficult to find a spot in busy hours.
