Beaches on Maui

Renowned for its stunning white, black, and red sand beaches surrounded by vibrant Pacific waters, Maui is an idyllic ocean destination like no other. With over 30 miles of unspoiled shorelines — some of the most beautiful in the world — the secluded Valley Isle is ideal for romantic getaways, family vacations, and everything in between.

Popular Water Sports Beaches

Experience Makena Beach State Park, the most photographed beach in all of Hawaii. Crystal-clear waters and a sandy bottom make this not only ideal for swimming, but also a popular spot for bodyboarding, skim boarding, and just about anything else that can be done on water.

Adventure awaits at Ka’anapali Beach. Just steps outside your suite at Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Ka'anapali Beach, you can parasail, surf, boat, and show off their balancing skills on a stand-up paddleboard. Gentle slopes lead up to Black Rock, where thrill-seekers enjoy jumping off a large lava-rock formation into the crystal-clear ocean waters. Prefer shopping or a foodie experience? Explore the nearby shops, restaurants, and bars, all within easy walking distance.

Where Family-Friendly Meets Nature

Family-friendly activities abound at Baldwin Beach Park. Enjoy swimming, sunbathing, and seashell hunting. You may even run into a friendly dog being walked, or even an impromptu drum circle!

Kapalua Bay is often rated the best beach in America, and it’s easy to see why. This sheltered spot – one of the most beautiful in Hawaii – offers fantastic snorkeling. You might even see a green Hawaiian sea turtle up close and personal.

Off-the-Beaten-Path Beaches

For a unique beach experience, check out Wai’anapanapa State Park. Explore velvety black sand, lava tubes, sea arches, and even a blowhole — always a crowd pleaser as water erupts upward out of black rock. Or venture off the beaten path and experience beach-life like the locals at Palauea — the “lazy” beach — where snorkeling and diving are popular activities.

Whether you seek adventure, breathtaking views, or just want to soak up the sun, Maui is a beach-lovers’ paradise just waiting for you.

Join us at Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Ka‘anapali Beach, and don’t forget your bathing suit and the sunscreen.
