Kamaole Beach Park II

About Kamaole 2

The excellent white sand beach at "Kam 2" extends for nearly a third of a mile. The beach park directly adjoins South Kihei Road, with parking available immediately off the roadway. People descend from the entrance down a short hillside to reach the Pacific Ocean. Maui County recently refurbished an ADA-accessible ramp to ensure everyone enjoys excellent access to this beach.

A fine covering of sand extends offshore, making this location ideal for swimming, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, and other water activities. Lifeguards watch over the waterfront during the hours when the park remains open to the public. Nonswimmers should exercise caution since the gradient of the land beneath the water proves steep in a few locations.
