Launiupoko Beach Park is one mile south of Puamana Beach Park. Now if you can say that right 3 times you win a prize. Nah, just kidding, but if you can say it, you’re doing pretty good. Launiupoko is located at the first traffic light heading south out of Lahaina. It has a large grassy lawn with picnic tables, BBQs, and lots and lots of shade.

At Launiupoko Beach there are restrooms and fresh water showers, but no lifeguard. Lauiniupoko’s proximity to the island of Lana'i gives this beach its gorgeous views. It is a popular beach with locals on weekends and holidays, so it can be crowded. Parking is limited, but there is overflow parking across the highway.

There is a small lagoon created by a breakwall in the middle of the park with soft grayish sand at the left end. Launiupoko Beach is a well-known spot for longboarding, stand-up paddling, and beginning surf lessons. The waves are usually nice and clean here. There are lots of surf breaks to choose from -- beginner to advanced. Here’s a little tip: The wave at the north and of the beach park, where the grass ends, is often not crowded.

"Do these locals know how lucky they are?"
Reviewed April 9, 2014
If you’re in Lahaina this is the best place to take a surf lesson. The waves are small and gentle and easy to ride. The surf instructors were so patient. They told us we could go to this other beach so that there wouldn’t be so many others surf schools around us and that it was a better place anyway. And man were they right. Launiupoko was such a beautiful park and so close to Lahaina town. There were trees with shade and picnic tables. Do these locals know how lucky they are? I want to move here and do this every day. I’m so hooked!!
