Makena Landing Park

Kayak on Maui

Makena Landing Park stands as a bustling cove and premier landing spot, drawing enthusiasts for kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, and shore dives on the southwestern coast of Maui.

This coastal haven boasts a gentle sandy entry, ideal for families with little ones. Showers, restrooms, and convenient parking enhance the appeal, making it a favored weekend retreat for Maui families.

While the stunning scenery competes with local attractions, a few drawbacks may deter some visitors. The relatively small beaches and the adjacent side-road, beneficial for transporting items like kayaks, may be less appealing to those seeking tranquility without the sounds of passing cars.

The beach offers a gradual slope into the bay, typically featuring minimal wave action (except during significant summer swells), creating a safe haven for children. Abundant sea turtles add to the allure, and the snorkeling and shore diving improve towards the northern side, particularly around Nahuna Point. On calm days, this expansive bay transforms into an excellent location for snorkeling lessons, unveiling a rich underwater world of sea life and shallow reefs. Dive into the beauty and adventure of Makena Landing Park for a memorable coastal experience.
