Keawakapu Beach features the longest stretch of sand in Wailea, South Maui, making it ideal for morning jogs and long sunset strolls. A few small resorts and a considerable number of luxury homes line the shoreline, making the beach busy but not quite as crowded as some of the big resort beaches farther south. Several lava rock outcroppings create shallow swimming areas for keiki and decent snorkel spots, especially when the wind is down in the early morning and late afternoon. Thanks to the mostly sandy bottom and gently rolling waves, boogie boarding and body surfing here can be fun for the whole family. Finding a peaceful nook to set up your towel and chair is a breeze, especially on the weekdays, but shade is scare, so don't forget an umbrella and sunscreen. Also, be careful not to step on bees that are commonly drawn to the plants growing alongside the sand.
