Lahaina beach lounging ranks high on the list of both visitors and locals alike–inviting soft sandy shores, plenty of sun, umbrella drink in hand, and blue skies stretching out to views of Moloka’i and Lana’i make for a great part of any day.
The warm Pacific waters here are good for swimming, snorkeling, or gazing. The wind typically picks up in the mid-morning and goes strong throughout the afternoon until the calm of evening settles in.
In the summer, soft south swells bring in adequate waves for surfers and paddlers. In the winter, Lahaina’s shores are filled with migrating and birthing humpback whales. All year long, outrigger canoes teams practice and compete along the shoreline. It is a perfect spot to lounge around and take in Maui.
