Top West Maui Beaches

Discover some of the most beautiful beaches on Maui
September 11, 2020

One of the many reasons so many of us love to live on Maui is for the island’s amazing beaches. For me, someone who has been selling beachfront luxury Maui real estate for many years, I know a good beach when I see one. And I will say that along with some of my favorite properties for sale, some of my favorite beaches just so happen to be located in Kapalua.

If you are interested in seeing some of the best beaches in West Maui, I made a good list for you. Here are the top three beaches I love on this side.

1. Oneloa (Ironwoods:) Picture a quiet stretch of white sand beach in a secluded area where rocks around the edges and rainbows are plenty. That beach actually exists and it just so happens to be Oneloa Beach (Ironwoods.) This stretch of white sandy beach that is about a quarter of a mile long is located near the famous Ritz Carlton and Kapalua Resort. It’s a sandy white beach with a shallow reef. Nearby are trails so after you go for a swim you can take a little afternoon hike and really enjoy the beauty that Kapalua has to offer.

2. Honolua Bay: What list of the best beaches in Maui would be complete with listing Honolua Bay? Honolua Bay is hands-down one of the best beaches in all of Hawaii. This bay is a well-known surf spot and also offers plenty of great snorkeling and exploring for people of all ages.

3. Slaughterhouse Beach: This hidden gem of a beach is often missed because it is located right before Honolua Bay. Down a small trail you will find an open cove that offers cliffside views of the blue ocean. You’ll love this beach because it’s often uncrowded and you can have this space all to yourself. It’s truly a beach of paradise!

That is my list of some of the best beaches in West Maui and, honestly, on the entire island in general. If you are interested in seeing some of the best real estate the island has to offer, I can help you with that as well. You can contact me and let me know what it is that you are looking for in terms of real estate on Maui. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you on the beaches soon! Aloha.
