Fleming’s has never been the cleanest Maui beach park. Scattered trash, unclean restrooms, and too much driftwood contribute to a second rate beach. In the winter months, the surf has bigger waves that are great for bodyboarding if one is in good shape and is...More

At first, most people will be turned off by this beach, but we liked it because it was the most natural looking beach we visited. There were a few people, but not many. There is a little park, bathrooms, lots of parking, and access to...More

As with much of the island this is left un-kept in my opinion and this was no exception. Not bad but just left me feeling dirty.

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

Ive been twice at two different times of the year. Beach on both occasions had murky water and the sand is full of tree branches and limbs fallen from the surrounding trees (which is a plus in terms of having plenty of shade). The facilities...More

This beach tends to be very rough for water activities (other than boogie boarding for strong, young, fit swimmers). With the typical heavy surf that tends to bring debris up onto the beach, it also doesn't make it a good beach for "strolling on the...More
