The nice part is this beach has lifeguards. I’m a swimmer so no big deal but for those that may need help they have staff here. Free parking as well. The bad part, they need to clean up the beach a bit. I get that...More

Great family beach. The nearby restaurant is owned by Ritz-Carlton which is a double edged sword. The menu is expensive but the burgers, pork sandwich, and shakes are awesome!!, but bring your Visa card!

This beach is walkable from the Kapalua villas or Ritz Carlton at Kapalua. This beach had some life guards the day we went. However there were warnings about shore break that day. We had a great day boogie boarding and riding the waves. We ate...More

Yes. There is an activity kiosk at the south end of the beach right behind the tree line. I think that it is hosted by the Ritz, but probably open to all (for purchase or rental). Go towards the south end of DT Fleming and... More
