Recently named "The best beach in America", Kapalua Bay is a sheltered paradise that often remains calm late into the afternoon. It is complemented by a very convenient walking path, foot showers and public restrooms, and is mirrored by Merriman's restaurant, for those looking for a romantic dinner. Expect stunning sunsets with views of neighboring islands.
A world-class beach named for the man who brought pineapples to Maui, DT Flemming is one of Maui's larger beaches (500 yards long). It borders the Ritz Carlton in West Maui, and has clean restrooms and plenty of tropical trees for shade.
Located in Kapalua, walk down steps to one of the west sides more rugged and wild beaches. Cliffs meet the ocean for a dramatic backdrop, and because the sun doesn't set here, it's a perfect place for a gorgeous morning ceremony.
Napili Bay is a lovely crescent shaped bay protected by island reefs... The result, perfect sugar-like sand, and crystal clear emerald water. One of our favorite beaches, it is fully developed and is home to the "Sea House" restaurant, but maintains its seclusion and Hawaiian charm.
Sheltered by an exposed stretch of reef, Baby Beach is a local favorite. It has beautiful surrounding views of Maui's neighbor islands, and quieter waters than most. Although a humbler beach than those north of Kaanapali, it is often a good spot to retreat in case of rain, thanks to Lahaina's ancient meaning, "cruel sun".
Keawakapu is a pristine, white sand paradise on Maui's south coast. It is lined by some of the island's most expensive homes and is mainly known among locals, often making it less crowded than others.
