Airport Beach – West Maui

Airport Beach on the west side of Maui, Hawaii is a good, clean, grassy beach that is ideal for families with small children.  It has excellent restroom facilities and several picnic tables with barbque grills.

It’s a good place to snorkel in the morning hours, but can get a bit rough after 1 p.m.  Bring snorkel equipment with you to Airport Beach as there’s no place nearby to rent snorkel or beach equipment.

Also, bring snacks, bottled water, sandwiches and other food items you might want, as there is not a grocery store or convenience store near Airport Beach.

Airport Beach is very popular with tourists and visitors to Maui, along with locals on the island.  The water is calm and clear in the morning, and there’s a nice sandy beach with a large grassy area for relaxing in the sun.

Airport Beach Suggestions.

  • Take Hwy. 30 past the town of Lahaina on the west side of Maui.  At the Kai Ala traffic light intersection, turn left toward the ocean.  As you approach the Airport Beach sign, veer to your right.  The large, free parking light is straight ahead.
  • Airport Beach is adjacent to the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort facility.
  • Take plenty of water and drinks, along with food.  There is not a convenience store or grocery store close to Airport Beach.
  • Bring plenty of sunscreen.  In fact, put sunscreen on your body before leaving your residence and let it soak into your body before entering the ocean.
  • The best to arrive at Airport Beach is 8 a.m. or shortly after, as the parking lot can fill-up rather quickly.  Weekends are very popular with the locals.
  • Bring some hot dogs and buns, charcoal, and condiments to cook hot dogs on the barbeque grills.  There is a Safeway at Lahaina Cannery Mall on Hwy. 30 in Lahaina Town.
