We’re Fine On Maui!

Aloha – Enjoy Maui!

Beaches.  Maui has some of the best beaches in the world.  Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay on the west side of the island are popular snorkel locations, and everyone loves Baby Beach in Lahaina.  Honolua Bay is also awesome for snorkeling, and Slaughterhouse Beach nearby is a tourist favorite.  Don’t forget to try D.T. Fleming Beach Park.

Big Beach is a favorite on the southwest side of Maui, along with Ulua Beach, the very popular Wailea Beach and an awesome Polo Beach.

In Paia on the windward side of Maui, there’s Baldwin Beach that is popular with both locals and visitors to Maui, and Ho’okipa Beach is just past the town of Paia.  Just before Hana is the famous Black Sand Beach.

La Perouse Bay is an incredible place to snorkel early in the morning, and Po’olenalena Beach is a little hide-away beach in the Makena State Park area of southwest Maui.
