Ho'okipa Beach Park, Maui - Hawaii
Blog Post - September 12, 2021
Ho'okipa Beach Park is located on the north side of Maui and is a beautiful beach.
This is one of the best beaches in Maui to see nesting sea turtles. The east side of the beach has a protected nesting area. We saw over 50 turtles on this part of the beach!
This beach is also popular for surfing and windsurfing.
They have an upper parking lot that has amazing overlook views of the beach and a lower parking lot that has access to the beach.
We loved the west side of the beach as it had the softest sand and amazing views!
As you drive in, you'll see the Ho'okipa Beach Park sign and the upper parking lot first.
This is the view from the overlook at the upper parking lot at Ho'okipa Beach Park.
As you walk down to the lower beach area, you have an amazing view of all of the sea turtles:
As you walk down to the lower beach area, they have bathrooms, showers, a lifeguard station, a pavilion and an overlook to see the sea turtles. This is the view from the overlook:
Once you are on the beach, there are signs telling you not to cross over to the protected sea turtle area:
As we explored this beach, there was a mixture of lava rock and soft sand:
The end of the beach was our favorite for relaxing and hanging out. The best parking lot to access the end of the beach is the gravel parking lot at the end.
Overall, we loved this beach and would highly recommend visiting on your next trip to Maui!
