About West Maui Beaches:
The beaches in West Maui typically have lower, gentler waves because the islands of Molokai, Lanai, and Kaho’olawe block most of the large waves coming in from the open ocean. Here you have sandy beaches with beautiful water for swimming and snorkeling. We highly recommend wearing water shoes due to rocks and marine life.
There are some public beaches nearby where the locals like to surf. The waves are large enough for surfing, boogie boarding, or body surfing. You will find even larger waves on the open, North and East sides of the island, but these are best reserved for the experts due to the rocks and strong currents.
Beaches Close to Papakea
Honoapiilani Park is a bright, sunny beach within walking distance of Papakea, but if you’re packing a cooler and beach equipment, you may want to drive instead. You will find plenty of parking, picnic tables, public bathrooms with showers, and access to the beach in front of the Honua Kai Resort.
Turn right when you leave the Papakea grounds onto lower Honoapiilani Highway. Take the last turn on the right before you come to the upper Honoapiilani Highway, across the road from the strip mall. This road will take you into Honoapiilani Park.
For anyone who needs a bit of shade, Will’s Beach is the ideal choice. Beautiful, old trees create lovely scenery and help block the sun. New construction of a public bathroom and shower building was in process at the time of this writing.
Turn right when you leave the Papakea grounds. Turn right onto the Upper Honoapiilani Highway. Then take the first right off of the Honoapiilani Highway onto Kai Malina Parkway. It will look like you are entering a condo complex. Take the first left and follow the road to a parking lot. Watch out for a big, unmarked dip in the road. The parking lot is free to the public and a short walk to the beach.
Airport Beach and Kahekili Beach Park
This area offers great fun for the family. Known as a popular snorkeling destination, the park also has space for games and parties. Grills, picnic tables, public restrooms, and showers are also available.
Turn right when you leave the Papakea grounds. Turn right onto the Upper Honoapiilani Highway. Turn right when you get to Puukolii Road. This will take you to a free public parking lot. It fills up quickly, so get there early.
