Maui Beaches -- Honolua Bay
This may be the best of all Maui beaches to snorkel and dive...in the summer. It is definitely one of the most beautiful and picturesque spots in all of Hawaii.
Honolua Bay offers a dramatic backdrop to the Kapalua Plantation Golf Course, and has two distinct personalities.
In the summer, Honolua offers crystal clear water perfect for snorkeling and diving. It is part of the Mokuleia Marine Life Conservation District so fishing is not allowed and ocean life is abundant everywhere.
In the winter, Honolua lines up with large, powerful, world-class surf making ocean activities treacherous for everyone but the experts. When Honolua is "on", it has some of the best surf of all Hawaii beaches. It even hosts an annual women's professional surfing event, the Billabong Pro Maui.
Besides showers, there are no amenities. There is also only a very small sandy beach area...the rest of the shoreline is rocks...so this is not the place to go if you want to lay on the beach.
