Our favorite part of Kihie. Not very many people and easy for swimming. As the afternoon turns to evening, the water comes very close to the dune so not the best option for walking the shore late in the day but great from morning to late afternoon.

Absolutely loved this beach! We stayed at the Kihei Holiday condos across the street from Sugar Beach!! It was so beautiful there!! Our balcony faced the beach, so we got some awesome sunset views.

This is a narrow beach, but if you want privacy this is the place to go. Very romantic! The water was so clear I barely needed my mask. Gorgeous fine golden sand.

Not the first beach that comes to mind during your Maui visit, but if you are staying in the Kihea area it is definitely a destination worth visiting.

Mostly bordering condo properties, this lightly populated beach is ideal for a romantic sunrise/sunset stroll or a morning run. With approximately 2 miles of unobstructed beach, Sugar Beach is the alternative to the resort area popular destinations.

If quiet serenity is the priority, this spot is worth a visit.

Quiet walk anytime of day. Commune with nature. Watch the whales shows, turtles and birds. Sugar Beach is absolutely beautiful.

We stayed at Sugar Beach resort with a wonderful view of sunsets overlooking sugar beach. This beach is a tad windy like other reviews mentioned. But it has very fine (sugar) sand and very few rocks. The waves are gentle and it is gentle access to the water so this is a perfect beach for small children. The fine sand does cause the water to be not as clear when it stirs up. We actually found a few other beach’s about 15 minutes away that we enjoyed more for the clearer waters and better snorkeling. Keawakapu Beach was great

We stayed on Sugar Beach and we enjoyed sitting on the beach every morning watching the stars, the sunrise, the outriggers and canoes, paddle boarders and turtles. Perfect beach for walking miles in both directions.

Not a lot of reefs for fish snorkeling although there are some. Also able to see some turtles typically after 1 p.m. or so. This area is perfect for sunbathing as many of the beaches are covered in rocks. Nice wide beach, plenty of room to spread out, well maintained.

Spent most of my trip to Maui at sugar beach. Relatively private and had a great view of the windmills. Close to many places to eat/shop etc. would definitely stay at sugar beach again in the future. Can get crowded depending which side of the beach you are located on.
