Kamaole Beach 1 or, “Kam 1” is a large beach with golden sand located in central Kihei; it is one of the most favored beaches on this side. Situated directly across from convenience stores and other shops you’ll have everything you need for fun in the sun. It is a great location for soaking up the rays.

At Kam Beaches there are lifeguards, showers, and restroom facilities. The sandbar at the ocean’s edge remains shallow for several feet making it safe for most beachgoers. Charley Young Beach is the section on the northern end of Kam 1 and is worth noting. Tall ironwood trees provide shade, and its high rock walls make it the best place if you want shelter from the wind. You might even find your own private cove. Charley Young Beach and “Kam 1” are very popular because they are located in the heart of Kihei. With awesome views of Molokini Crater, Kaho'olawe, Lana’i, and the West Maui Mountains, the sunsets from this beach have to be some of the best in the world.

The next beach traveling south on South Kihei Road is Kamaole Beach 2, or “Kam 2” and is mostly enjoyed by the visitors staying in the condominiums across the street. It is another wide, white sandy beach with calm waters. This beach is perfect for launching your kayak or trying out the newest sport of stand-up paddling. Conveniently located across from shops and restaurants, you’ll never be left without all the necessities.

Heading further into south Kihei you’ll find Kamaole Beach 3, or “Kam 3”. It is the last of three Kihei Kam beaches you’ll find with soft white sand and warm calm water, except during Kona wind episodes or large summer swells. Kam 3 is a beach park with a large sprawling area of green grass.

There’s more grass than sand here, making it nice for activities like barbeques, flying kites, and other social events. Kam 3 has a playground area for kids and restroom facilities. It is one of the most popular places on Maui to watch the sunset.

"Perfect for watching the sunsets"
Reviewed April 9, 2014
These beach parks are all in Kihei and face west making them perfect for watching the sunsets. We liked Kam 3 and Kam 1 the best. We particularly like Charley Young’s beach over by Kam 1. There are small pockets of lava rock where you can set up camp and have a little area all to yourself. The water seems a little clearer on this end of the beach too. Maybe it’s just the shallow pockets that wash up the beach. Kam 3 has the large grassy area and plenty of room for the kids to run around. There is a playground and restrooms. Everything you need is right there.
