Boat Ramp Cove (South Kihei)
2988 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753
So this location is not exactly secret, it’s just not well known to visitors. The beach is rocky and not swimmable for beachgoers but there can be people fishing from one side or another. Weekends you might find local families there to fish and bbq and there is a hiking trail so people do walk by but don’t generally linger. It feels pretty private to me and sea turtles like to come and rest on the beach.
So far as I know it doesn’t have a name but it’s just south of the Kihei Boat Ramp/Landing. You actually pull into the boat ramp parking lot and then walk to the left by the water. The little cove is just on the other side of the boat ramp jetty (to the left / south). Here are some photos. Note that the photos use a wide angle lens so it’s smaller in real life.
Mai Poina Beach Park (North Kihei)
353 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753
Not a lot of plam trees but since it’s not a great swimming beach it doesn’t get many (if any) people sitting on the beach. Parking is along the street and isn’t too hard to come by. The stretch of beach to the north and south of here is also generally empty, it’s just easier to park at Mai Poina (also called Ohukai). I don’t have any photos of this beach but here is a google image search.
