To Do in Maui: Beaches

Of course! We spent a couple hours each day at the gorgeous beaches around Kihei.

Our first day, we stopped at the beach in front of the Fairmont Hotel - where we loved swimming in the warm water and going down the waterslide at the hotel pool. In the evening, the hotel has a guy in Hawaiian dress play a conch shell and light a bunch of tiki torches around the property.

The third day, we set up in the early morning at Kamaole Beach in "downtown" Kihei. This was my favorite for the warm water, sea turtles, shave ice stand nearby and ample trees for shade along the beach. Exhausted from our packed first two days, we all took long naps in the shade between swims.

Our final day, we drove south to the beach in front of the Makena Resort - probably the smallest but with the best water and the nicest umbrellas by the pool.
