    Solid snorkeling right of the very beautiful beach. Saw multiple turtles off the side in front of the four seasons.

    Pretty public beach, nice and quiet. No facilities so take plenty to drink with you
    It’s a clean sandy beach and gentle slope into the sea so nice for families too

    This beach is nice but has a rough undertow. I would not drive any further than this beach. The road to LaPerouse Bay gets very narrow and there are not spots to turn around. In addition, the road is not wide enough for two cars. It is not picturesque so best to just avoid all together.

    Our first time to a nude beach and we loved it! Had to wait for it to open in the morning and ended up talking to some very friendly "regulars", who made my wife and I feel right at home.

    Once we got in, it felt very comfortable to just take it all off! My wife loved the feeling of being free from her swimsuit and we felt no judgement or stares from anyone else on the beach.

    Warning: the waves can be strong here!

    Can't wait to go back!

    Views are gorgeous, of course. You are walking/running next to all the fancy resorts in the area. There is plenty of parking nearby if you arrive early enough. Our run out was fabulous, but by the way back it was quite crowded. This isn't really the best place to push double-strollers or walk three people side-by-side. It is single-file as there are people going both directions (although some folks seemed oblivious to this fact). If you are a serious runner, adjust your expectations to a gentle jog through this portion & enjoy the scenery. Some truly excellent people-watching here as well.

    Turtles watching was amazing! Watched surfing competition around the corner previously, had no idea green turtles were on the beach! You truly can’t tell them apart from the ricks!

    Was recommended to us for boogie boarding and it was GREAT! Awesome swells on the afternoon we visited.

    Lots of free parking and only a small walk to the beach. Would recommend!

    Had an awesome beach dive and a bucket list item checked off when seeing a white tipped reef shark in a cave not far off the beach.

    This is probably our favorite beach in South Maui though the access is a little harder now due to home construction activities. Also, at this time, the sand is at a rather slanted angle, making it a bit more challenging to stroll down the beach. However, the snorkeling is good on clearer water days and there are usually several turtles swimming by. Boogie boarding is often very good here, though this year the water was comparatively calm when we were there.

    We picked this beach to have our wedding on. Checked the beach out the day before seen a couple of turtles on the shore. Seen some fish in the water swimming along the shore.Walk down the path to the right of the gate and it takes you to a nice spot. The wedding was at sunset and everything went great. Thanks for the applause from the family watching the ceremony. 🙏 It’s a great little beach has a good amount of parking a few holes on the way in.
