15-foot high waves, beautiful scenery. Not for beginner swimmers but a great beach to relax on. A few rocks in the surf and a wicked undertow, so watch out.

I was looking for a snorkeling spot and found this beach instead. It's located in a pretty cove and not too crowded. What's not to like?

Beautiful, water was too rough for us to snorkel that day. We got recommended to go there to check out the marine life. We were lucky to see a turtle surfing but that was it. We didn't snorkel whilst it was rough as I know...More

Stumbled across this beach on our visit to Maui. A short walk down some stairs and you are at the most amazing, quiet beach. Great snorkelling spot, was very safe for the kids. Saw turtles while snorkelling and even when just standing in the lovely,...More

Great secluded cove; shallow, sandy shoreline... big breaking waves so make sure you’re a strong swimmer if the waves are breaking hard. Parking is limited so arrive early.

Finding this beautiful beach is difficult so getting there early to find car parking is recommended. A steep walkway (staired) takes you through what seems a tropical haven to this paradise. A quiet beautiful and amazingly photogenic beach with crystal clear water and fantastic sand....More

Before setting foot on this beach, you're likely going to make a u-turn or two for parking, you're going to walk down some steps, and you're going to pass a whole lot of humanity, but it's going to be 100% worth it. Even when it's...More

Left our condo on south Lahaina at 9am for our drive north to Olivine Pools and Nakalele Blowhole – hikes to get to both. We stopped at the many lookouts (Slaughterhouse Beach) over the Pacific. Absolutely gorgeous and worth the time.

It was wonderful to find this beach and have some snorkel time in crystal clear water. You could see in the distance for much further than any of the other locations we snorkeled. Lots of lovely fish and even a turtle! There are the stairs...More
