D.T. Fleming Beach Park

This lovely northwestern Maui beach begins near the 16th hole of the beautiful Kapalua golf course at Makaluapuna Point and continues to the other side of the cove on Honokahua Bay which is bordered by sea cliffs. Fleming Beach is long and wide and is usually great for swimming and snorkeling while also providing good waves for surfers and bodyboarders.

The shoreline is fairly steep and the water is sometimes slightly cloudy for snorkeling. Fleming Beach is subject to seasonal high surf and dangerous conditions. Beginners should not go in the water during times of big waves or rough ocean water due to strong currents and rip tides.
