This was our last stop on our "Road to Hana" day, so most of us were getting tired, but it still was a nice stop. There were many people there, but not many surfing, maybe they were done for the day or the waves just...More

This is an excellent picnic spot. Sit under the share at a picnic table, watch the waves roll in and the surfers. At the end of the beach we spotted up to 18 turtles sunning on the beach. It might not be the best place...More

This beach is a must stop. The turtles beach themselves here. We thought it was rocks on the beach but there were at least 29 turtles sunning themselves in the thick luscious sand. Do not miss. Also, it is right next to mama's fish house,...More

Visited in May with only moderate surf. Parking less tight on a weekday at this time of year than we have experienced before. This is not a swimming beach; its a world class windsurfer beach. Some surfers too. Great views of very experienced windsurfers doing...More

We stopped here on a particularly windy day and saw a lot of surfers, windsurfers and we counted 35 sea turtles on the beach! At the far end (to your right, if you're looking at the water). Really cool to see. Some colourful language from...More

Our local friend suggested we step up to surf Ho'okipa since the waves were enjoyable but not overhead! We have surfed at other parks but have avoided the restrooms etc due to dirty conditions. The facilities here are the cleanest I have ever seen at...More

We stopped here for the view & were really impressed. A small hike down a rocky trail makes this much better. We stop here every time we come to Maui! The waves breaking on the rocks are a sight to see. Recommended!

We stopped by here several times during our trip. It's a great beach to watch the surfers when the surf is up. Make sure you look for the turtles resting on the beach while you are there, we missed them the first few times we...More

Delayed answer. The surfing app question has been answered quite well. Surfers are there whenever the wind is blowing, which is all of the time. This is one of the VERY best wind surfing beaches in the world. The greatest... More
