What to Expect
aka: North Beach or Airport Beach
This beach is named after the last king of Maui. King Kamehameha fought long and hard to defeat King Kahekili, who turned out to be his father. The beach is long and sandy with great facilities. A windbreak protects the air from aggravating afternoon winds. Snorkeling and scuba diving is especially good here.
Swimming is hazardous due to hidden rocks in the surf. Swimming is better further down the beach toward Black Rock.
Covered picnic tables
Grassy area Large, paved parking lot

Sandy beach with rocky areas
Take Highway 30 north from Lahaina toward Ka'anapali. Just past Mile Marker #25, turn left on Kai Ala Drive to Kahekili Beach Park.
