What travelers are saying
A local favorite, this beach is the more quiet end of "Kamaole I" but feels much more remote, due to its being two blocks from busy South Kihei road. Ironwood trees lining this end of the beach provide some rare Kihei beach shade, and the sand coves and shallow waters are a favorite of local families with kids. The sand is fine and soft, and the impressive length of this beach yards is great for walks and runs. As with other west-facing Kihei beaches, it is a great place to watch sunset. Less crowded than most Kihei beaches and more wind-sheltered. Connects to Kamaole I creating a long beach for walks or jogging. HOURS: am to pm daily.

Beautiful, long, 1. Snorkeling opportunities are plentiful. Full facilities and family friendly. Minuses: Kam III is crowded on weekends and holidays and sometimes less-than-desirable types make the grassy areas a drinking hangout. Besides being in the middle of the action, these beaches are very popular due to an unbeatable combination of accessibility, facilities, and just plain old really nice beaches! Normally the ocean at these beaches is relatively safe for swimmers, although it should be noted that the ocean does drop to overhead levels relatively close to shore. Also during Kona storms and south swells, the surf can get big, rip currents form, and swimming can become dangerous. The boundaries of the three beaches are delineated by rocky points at either end of the beach. There are small, vaguely worded signs indicating a public access exists through there, but it is not clear precisely where likely because much more of this manicured lawn is actually public beach than they would like to admit! Snorkeling is also pretty good at all of these beaches.
