Sugar Beach

kihei beachSugar beach is located north of Kenolio Beach extending up to Maalaea Harbor. Most of this 6 mile stretch of of white sandy beach is undeveloped and very quiet. While the southern portion, around the Sugar Beach Resorts, offers some swimming, sand, and facitlties, most of the shoreline has a jagged reef just off shore making swimming and snorkeling very hard. This is good spot for kayaks and paddleboards exploring the reefs off shore.

Other Beaches

There are a few small parks and undeveloped beaches along the shore. The Maipoina Oe Lau Park has grassy areas, tables and trees to sit back and enjoy the sunset. Waipuilani Beach Park is a quiet beach with a sandy shore and very few people. At the end of Lipoa St. is access to a nice sandy beach area you will have all to yourself.
