Maui's best beaches are located on the southwestern shore, from Kaanapali north of Lahaina down to the area south of Kihei. Many of the beaches are associated with private clubs, but thanks to state law, all shoreline is public property and public accessways are required. On of the best snorkeling beaches on Maui is Honolua Bay just north of Lahaina. Near Hana on the eastern side of the island you can visit Waianapana Black Sand beach (swimming is dangerous, though, due to currents) and Hamoa Beach, a beautiful beach tucked away near a resort.
