Maalaea Beaches

The Maalaea Beaches aren’t that popular. They are often overshadowed by the ones in the West and South shores of Maui. However, there are good beaches in Maalaea. Especially if you are looking to take a long walk on the beach. Maalaea has beaches for different activities that guests might want to enjoy. If you aren’t a strong swimmer or if you have children with you, you can head to the Maalaea Harbor Baby Beach, but be careful of the shallow reef.


This beach is protected from the waves and boat hazards so the water is calm. This makes it perfect for anyone who wants to play on the shoreline. Maalaea Beach is perfect for guests who just want to stroll along the beach and watch the ocean. This place is secluded and quiet so you won’t have to contend with many people over the space. On certain days when the waves are big enough, this place is a great spot to watch surfers ride the famous wave “Freight Trains”. Another beach that is perfect for a relaxing stroll is Haycraft Beach Park. Guests can also have a picnic here since there are picnic tables that they can use.
