Baby Beach In Lahaina Is A Popular Beach
One of the most popular beaches on the west side of Maui is Baby Beach. It’s close to the town of Lahaina, is an easy walk from Lahaina Cannery Mall, and is popular with both tourists and locals. The waters are always calm and clear, and it’s a very family-friendly beach.
It’s an easy beach to find!
Located just south of the Lahaina Cannery Mall, you can park along Front Street or you can turn on Pu’unoa Street and there is limited parking on both sides of the road. Make sure you don’t block a driveway or interfere with other vehicles.
It’s easier if you park at the Lahaina Cannery Mall or at The Outlets of Maui shopping center and walk to Baby Beach. Either way, it’s just an easy 10-15 minute walk and your care will be secure in a larger parking lot.
Baby Beach is a clean, family-oriented, sandy beach that is known by locals and tourists for its crystal-clear, shallow water. It’s ideal for young children. It’s also a great place for whale watching, and is a good location for Maui’s famous sunsets.
Baby Beach has several grassy areas, where you can spread-out blankets or towels. There are houses along the beach, but they are a good distance back from the shoreline and have privacy fences and hedges. You have a great view of the Kaanapali Beach Resort area to your right, and a straight-ahead view of the island of Lanai.
Staying in Lahaina, Kaanapali or somewhere else on West Maui? Baby Beach is a good place to spend a half day. It does not have restroom facilities, nor does it have picnic tables and grills. But it’s a good place to spend a few hours, swim in shallow waters, and watch the sun set over the Hawaiian island of Lanai.
