Join Discover Hawaii Tours to experience the beautiful beaches Maui has to offer. Each beach-goer craves a different experience, and our Maui Day Tours can help you uncover the vacationing spot that best suits your desires and that best pair with all inclusive Hawaii vacation packages.


Kaanapali Beach

For instance, Kaanapali Beach, located in West Maui, attracts the adventurous with its options for parasailing, surfing, and sailing. Black Rock, located on Kaanapali Beach, holds a cliff diving ceremony each evening as the sun sets into the ocean. For those who prefer relaxing on a secluded, hidden beach, Keawakapu Beach is a paradise. Nested between Wailea and Kihei, Keawakapu Beach is one of Maui’s smaller beaches, but absolutely an ideal location for a more private spot for swimming and sunbathing. Keawakapu Beach is home to a gorgeous reef that invites snorkelers to discover the underwater world.

Wailea Beach
Wailea Beach, located on the southwestern coast of Maui, is yet another jaw-dropping destination. With its golden sands and rolling waves, Wailea Beach welcomes sunbathers and surfers. Known for its clear waters and level shore, Wailea Beach’s sandy coast is an excellent place to spot swimming whales in their natural habitat. Like Wailea Beach, Hamoa Beach attracts those who prefer a relaxing setting. With a mixture of coral and lava creating a gray sand along this beach, Homoa Beach is a fabulous sunbathing location. Lush green trees and black-lava sea cliffs surround this destination, providing a more private location for nature lovers to admire the magnificent spectacles Homoa Beach has to offer. Because Hamoa Beach opens up to the ocean without barriers, powerful rip currents often create tumbling waves that are fantastic for bodysurfers or surfers on boards. On the opposite end of Hamoa Beach, the water is calm and serves as a popular snorkeling destination.

For those with a longing for discovery at heart, a trip to Waianapanapa State Park in east Maui is absolutely necessary. The remote state park with its black sand is quietly nestled among low cliffs and a volcanic coastline. Ideal for hiking, bird-watching, and exploring, this state park has many features to offer, including a hala forest, a religious temple, sea stacks, blow holes, and many more. Explorers are welcome to camp and picnic in this park. Discover Hawaii Tours is excited to share the beauty and magic of Maui by providing day tours of these magnificent beaches.
