Beautiful beach. We sat out every evening and watched the sunset. Our 1st visit to Maui. We enjoyed it much more than Oahu. It had more of an island feel than Oahu did.

Great spot to chillout and snorkel. The only downside is that it is a crowded spot that attracts lots of tourists.

Beautiful views of Lānai. Crashing waves, white caps, and clear water. Easily access hotels along the beach.

This is a great long beach with lots of room. Minimal shade available. Great snorkeling near Black Rock and if your brave a great spot to jump off the rock. This beach is near shopping, restaurants and many hotels. Biggest issue is finding parking.

Wal Mart is the cheapest place to buy but closest to Black Rock might be pricey.
