Maui has some of the finest beaches in all of Hawaii, as well as some of the most diverse. West Maui offers a number of fine beaches scattered between major resorts (Kaanapali being our personal favorite), while South Maui is teaming with a variety of beaches along the shoreline from north Kihei to beyond Wailea. The famous duo of Big Beach and Little Beach are extremely popular here. East Maui offers few beaches along the Hana Highway but makes up for it with a beautiful black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park. Plus, beyond Hana town you'll find world-renowned Hamoa Beach; voted one of the finest anywhere. If you're up for a little adventure, there's even a red sand beach just on the edge of Hana town. Whether you're looking for a romantic stroll for two, a family-friendly day in the sun, or the perfect snorkeling location, Maui has the spot for you. Choose your perfect slice of sand from these great Maui beaches.
Kihei & Wailea Beaches
The Kihei and Wailea areas highlight the absolute best South Maui has to offer: warm weather, glorious sunshine, and dry weather- perfect for beachcombing… or snorkeling, paddleboarding, or practically any other beach activity you can think of. Black sand, white rocks, and everything in between await you here.
Hana Highway Beaches
Oh, legendary Road to Hana, how we love your beaches! The “Heavenly Hana” region has certainly earned its moniker, and the beaches here really do epitomize heaven. Choose your sand- red, black, golden, or even rocky shoreline- and get ready for sheer bliss on these amazing beaches.
West Maui Beaches
West Maui is the home of postcard-perfect beaches seen the world over. Lush green valleys and rugged peaks frame some of Hawaii’s best beaches; crystal blue waters, soft white sands, and beach activities galore await you here- everything from cliff diving to swimming with Hawaiian green sea turtles. See what makes these West Maui beaches so remarkable.
You simply cannot miss the opportunity to explore and play in the waters off Maui, as each is truly a bucket list adventure. Catch that perfect wave (or even your very first one), reel in “the big one” on a Maui fishing charter, or paddle into the sunset. And speaking of sunset, how about a cocktail cruise as you watch the sun meld into the horizon in an explosion of color? See what makes these Maui ocean adventures so special.
