One of the most easily accessible wild beaches on Maui is Baldwin Beach. It’s best for long walks and wave play. Locals love it, so do kids. It’s close to Paia so you can make it a day of shopping and end the day at one of the town’s great restaurants. It makes an ideal “first vacation day.” Directions to get there as well as countless other beaches are in the Maui Trailblazer guidebook.
This looks like a wonderful beach. Haven’t been to Maui in years, always seem to end up on Oahu or Kauai, but we’re thinking Mauai needs a little visit from us again. You’ve convinced me of that.
