Archive for the ‘Kamaole II Beach, Maui’ Category

Kamaole II beach is┬álocated in South Kihei, right across the road from the Maui Banyan condos where we stayed. So of course we ended up spending a fair bit of time there. It was relatively quiet most of the time, and we always enjoyed our time there. It was a great beach for all the usual beach activities: laying in the sun, swimming, snorkeling, and even a bit of boogie boarding. We also got to do a bit of whale watching one day, and saw some giant whales leaping out of the water on the horizon. It was very neat to see from shore. But we couldn’t time the photos right, so weren’t able to get any good shots of them jumping.

We also enjoyed looking around on the rocky point between Kamaole II and Kamaole III. You get a great view from out there, and there were even a few small tide pools to look at. I enjoyed snorkelling around the rocky point, and saw some pretty good schools of fish there.

Quite often there were fishermen on the rocks in the morning and evenings, although I didnt get a chance to join them. Maybe next time…

We took a lot of photos during the many great sunsets we saw at Kamaole Beach II:

There is also a nice trail which joins Kamaole I, II, and III, which was great for those in our group who liked to go for morning or evening walks. We were usually more interested in just hanging out at the beach though, so we didn’t use the trail.

Overall we were very happy staying so close to such a good beach. It was only a three minute walk from our condo unit at the Maui Banyan, which you can read the full review for here.
