Family Friendly Beaches on Maui

“Best beach in the world.” When living on Maui, you will find that many a beach here fit that exclamation to a tee. Pristine sands, warm tides, and gentle ocean breezes are available to enjoy all across our island home, all year round! Best of all, many are perfect for family’s of all ages to enjoy. Here is a selection of wonderful Maui beaches that many would say are best in the world for family fun:

Kamaole Beach Park III
While all of Kihei’s Kamaole Beach Parks make great options for family outings, Kamaole Beach Park III is perhaps the best of them all! In addition to a very large sandy beach, Kamaole Beach Park III also features an enormous grassy park area filled with benches, grills, kids play areas, and much more. As an added bonus, this beach park is just a few minutes away from takeout restaurants and grocery stores – perfect for grabbing that 1 picnic item you forgot to pack in the morning!

Baby Beach (Spreckelsville)
Tucked away in the historic residential enclave of Spreckelsville, Baby Beach is a fantastic option for those looking to enjoy an outing to the beach in Central Maui. A healthy sized stretch of white sand leads out to a natural lagoon of waist high waters calmed by an exposed stretch of reef. While this beach is a great, safe option to take your kids, you will want to enjoy Baby Beach early as once the day wears and winds increase, you and your family may be pelted by gusts of coarse sands licked up by the afternoon winds.

Baby Beach (Lahaina)
Considered by many to be the best beach for families in the area, Lahaina’s Baby Beach gets its name from the fact that it’s a great beach to take your toddler to. Thanks to an offshore reef, large waves are kept from reaching the coastline, keeping the waters here calm throughout the day. As a bonus, the water here is also very shallow for quite a ways out; giving you and your young ones ample space to wade and explore as tropical fish and sea life float by.

Kapalua Bay
Soft white sands, calm blue waters, amazing sunsets; some might say Kapalua Bay has it all! Often heralded as one of the world’s best beaches, Kapalua Bay offers something for every beachgoer. Lounge with your family on the pristine warm sands, take a stroll alone the adjacent walking path, or bring your gear and go snorkeling!

Wailea Beach
Fronting two of the best resorts in South Maui, Wailea Beach is known for its long stretches of golden sand and warm blue waters. A great place for swimming, boogie boarding, sunbathing, or strolling; this beach is best enjoyed with your family earlier in the day, prior to the arrival of afternoon winds and larger crowds.

While these are just a few of the “best of the best” beaches on Maui, there are many, many more fantastic options available throughout the island; many a simple stroll away from your new luxury Maui home! Enjoy!
