Mokapu Beach

Mokapu Beach Wailea Maui 
Overview: While there's no "official" geographic distinction, many would argue that Mokapu Beach is the "first" beach in Wailea. The northernmost of four beaches that are connected by the Wailea Coastal Walkway, Mokapu Beach fronts the Andaz Resort and is a popular spot for snorkeling, paddling, and people just learning to scuba dive.

Aside from being one of the best beaches on Maui, it's also a family-friendly beach with restrooms, showers, public parking, and a convenient roundabout for drop-offs.

Good For: Snorkeling, swimming, scuba diving sunbathing, boogie boarding, and surfing.

Not So Good For: It's a little more exposed to the wind than some of the other beaches in Wailea.

Maui Expert Tip For Mokapu Beach: Even though it's at the northern end of the Wailea Coastal Walkway, you can follow a path on the north end of the beach that connects with Keawakapu Beach. It's a nice, 30-minute beachfront walk—and especially good around sunset.
Directions and Parking Situation: There's a large public parking lot at the end of Ulua Beach Road. The lot can sometimes get full, however—so try and get there early.
