What? Keawakapu Beach (Kay-ava-ka-poo) is in South Kihei Maui and stretches into Wailea. It's one of the best beaches in South Maui, with some very expensive real estate fronting the beach. Home prices can run to $10,000,000 easily. You can also find beachfront condos like the cozy Hale Hui Kai and the extensive Wailea Ekahi development. This beach is primarily for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and sometimes surfing. Sunsets are pretty awesome too.
Where? There's a nice shady parking lot at the corner of South Kihei Road and Kilohana Drive, which is also where Kihei ends and Wailea begins. Park here and walk across to the beach access which has fresh water showers. Once you walk out onto the sand, you can look north and see the Mana Kai beachfront resort, and Five Palms Restaurant. Looking south you'll see a long stretch of golden sand and the distant cinder cone of Puu Olai in Makena.
Please pay attention to the signs and avoid any dangers when visiting our Maui beaches.
