Maui Beach Wedding Locations

I’m asked about where the best Maui Beach wedding locations are only all of the time 😄. I created this post to help couples decide what’s best for them using photos from some of my past weddings.

☀️ Are all of our beaches on Maui beautiful? Yes.

Each location has it’s own beauty. Hire a great photographer who will make the most of it. I recommend that you hire a local photographer who lives on Maui full time. Better yet, hire someone raised here or who has been here a while. Local roots mean you get someone who knows the island, respects the land and the people. Supporting the local economy is also maika’i (good) for the local economy.

I have a list of my favorite photographers so contact me and I’ll share.

☀️ Where can I find a peaceful uncrowded beach for my Maui wedding ceremony? It’s not where, it’s a when! Have a sunrise or early morning ceremony.

An early morning wedding (6am-9am) will mean the beaches will very likely be uncrowded and quiet. The colors are lovely in the AM and it’s less likely to be windy.

South Maui Wedding Locations – Kihei, Wailea, Makena

Here are some photos from weddings in South Maui with the location and general time of day in the captions. AM means before noon and PM means after 4pm. A post about South Maui beach locations from a while back is here.

Choice Beaches for weddings in South Maui: White Rock (Palauea), Makena Cove (AM’s uncrowded), Po’olenalena, Sugar Beach, Keawakapu (Mana Kai / 5 Palms), Maluaka. Kamaole III walking trail / overlook. The beaches near the resorts & hotels like Wailea, Polo & Mokapu tend to be crowded so I don’t recommend them.

West Maui Wedding Locations – Lahaina, Kapalua

Here are some photos from weddings in West Maui with the location and general time of day in the captions. AM means before noon and PM means after 4pm.

There aren’t a ton of choices for the West Side due to permitting laws for weddings. The three main locations are Baby Beach, Ironwoods (Oneloa) and D.T. Fleming. Kapalua Bay is lovely but crowded unless it’s off-season.
