Maui Beaches

Maui Beach Sunset

Just another sunset in Hawaii… this was shot at an undisclosed location on the island of Maui, Hawaii (but feel free to take a guess). Let’s just say that this is my own secret beach. It was cloudy the entire afternoon, with the sun popping out for just enough time to take a few shots. […]

Baldwin Beach – Maui, Hawaii

Here’s a video tour of Baldwin Beach Park, located on Maui’s North Shore near the towns of Paia, Haiku and Spreckelsville. It’s got a great “baby beach” area at the end of the beach that’s nicely protected from the open ocean, and provides kids with a safe place to swim and play. The beach is […]

Beautiful Ocean

I was driving along lower road in Napili and saw the water color at this beach I was passing. I pulled to the side of the road and took a few seconds of video from my iphone. West Maui has some amazing water colors along the coast, especially near Kaanapali and Napili.

Secret Beach Video Guide

Music: “The Voyage Home” by Daniel Ho, from the album “Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar (The Complete Collection)” Secret Beach is one of the most photographed places on Maui, as well as one of the most popular places to get married. It’s not a swimming beach like nearby Big Beach. But it’s great for hanging out […]

Polo Beach

Here are a few photos from my scout of Polo Beach in Wailea. It’s an excellent beach park that has amenities, showers, and the best part – you can use the Fairmont Kea Lani’s beach chairs even if you’re not a guest! Also, take my advice and go exploring around this beach. Go for a […]

Napili Bay Video Guide

This video is of Napili Bay on Maui’s west side. I can’t explain why I edited the piece in this style, other than to say that I just let the editing process take me where it wanted to take me. I know that it’s a departure from some of my other videos, but hopefully the […]

Wailea Beach Video Guide

If you had to categorize Wailea Beach, it would probably be called a ‘resort beach’ since it’s surrounded by the Four Seasons and Grand Wailea, with the Wailea Beach Marriot close by. And most of the beachgoers here are probably staying at one of those resorts. But that shouldn’t take away from the fact that […]

Kapalua Beach Video Guide

Perfect for snorkeling, sightseeing, and sunbathing – Kapalua Beach has it all. It’s one of the most popular beaches in West Maui, and it’s right smack in the middle of several resorts, making it easily accessible. There’s a snorkel rental shack on the north end of the beach for easy access to equipment. And since […]

Cove Park Sunset

These are pictures of a brilliant sunset I saw at Cove Park in Central Kihei. Maui has some great sunsets, but this one was the best I’ve ever seen. It came at the end of a long, rainy day as me and a friend were on our way to Da Kitchen for some local grinds. […]

Unknown Olowalu Beach

Some of the best beaches are the ones you just stumble upon. This is a perfect example. It’s a beach that I can’t find the name of, near the tiny town of Olowalu on Maui’s west side. So for lack of an official name, let’s honor Olowolu by naming this one Chez’s Beach. And if […]

Palauea Beach Video Guide

Here’s a video guide to Palauea Beach (aka White Rock), my favorite beach on the entire island of Maui. It’s a superb spot for snorkeling, paddle boarding, and boogie boarding. There are lava outcroppings on both ends of the beach that are usually hopping with underwater life. I found the south end of the beach […]

Ulua Beach Video Guide

Ulua Beach is one of the many resort beaches in Wailea. Snorkeling here is pretty good, although you may get some more sea turtles and fish at other South Maui locations. And I’ve seen many scuba fans enter the water at this beach, so maybe the scenery is better further out. The waves at this […]

Baby Beach Video Guide

If you’re looking for a great keiki beach that’s safe for infants and toddlers, then Baby Beach on Maui’s west side is for you. The protective reef that surrounds the beach gives it a shallow depth and gentle waves. The views of Lanai and Molokai are great as well. And best of all, the beach […]

Big Beach Video Guide

A video guide to Makena State Beach, also known as Big Beach, on Maui’s south side. Big Beach is one of the most popular beaches on Maui. Snorkeling is good, but beware of various ocean conditions here (strong currents, big waves) – better for the advanced snorkeler. If waves are big, boogie boarding can be […]
