Located in Kihei on Maui’s South shore, Kamaole Beach Park is broken into three sections divided by rocky areas. Kamaole I is the largest and also the northernmost of the beaches.
The powder soft white sand and crystal clear blue waters of the beach created picture perfect conditions for swimming and snorkeling. There is also a grassy area at Kamaole I where people enjoy picnicking and taking breaks from playing in the water.
Kamaole II is the smallest of the beaches but here the waves pick up especially during swells drawing surfers and bodysurfers to this beach. Kamaole III is also known as Iliiliholo which translates to “running pebbles”.
During various times of the day, the sand is sucked out to sea exposing shingle-like pebbles and when the water flows over these pebbles it creates a unique rumbling sound. Kamaole III, although not the largest of the three beaches, is arguably the most popular of the three.
It has a wide sand beach perfect for sunbathing or picnicking by the sea. There is also a large grassy area with BBQ pits and picnic areas as well as a playground area for the keiki (children).
There is no lifeguard at any of the Kamaole beaches but there are restrooms, showers, changing areas, picnic tables, and parking lots.
