Charley Young Beach

Charley Young Beach, Maui

Located in Kihei on Maui's south shore, Charley Young Beach (view panorama) is a great spot for family picnics. It is right next to Kamaole I Beach (in fact it is difficult to tell where Charley Young Beach ends and Kamaole I begins because it's basically one long stretch of sand).

The ocean bottom drops off gently here, and the snorkeling conditions can be good when the ocean is calm. However, even though the beach is a nice place for swimming and other ocean activities on most days of the year, high surf and strong rip currents may occur, especially in the winter months (November to March).

This is our family's favorite beach! We rent a condo at the Maui Vista across the street (1116) and every morning when the water is as smooth as ice we swim the entire length of the beach. Then in the evening there is a pilgrimage of people from the surrounding area that head to Charley Young for the most impressive sunsets ever! Great beach!!!
