Slaughterhouse Beach, Maui - Hawaii
Blog Post - September 12, 2021
Slaughterhouse Beach is located on the west side of Maui and is an amazing beach.
The original name of the beach was Mokule’ia Beach, but because of a Slaughterhouse located on the cliff’s edge, it became referred to as Slaughterhouse Beach. The slaughterhouse buildings were torn down in the 1960’s so now all you see is a beautiful beach.
This beach has good snorkeling when the water is calm. In the winter months it is better known for its waves.
Slaughterhouse Beach has limited parking along the street. Once you park, you will walk down a long flight of concrete steps. This will lead you out onto the beach.
We went snorkeling on the north end of the beach and saw all sorts of fish.
This is what the parking area looks like:

You walk over to the stairs and go down to get to the beach.
