West Side of Maui Locations

If you're staying on Maui's West side in locations like Lahaina, Kaanapali, Napili, or Kapalua, please have a look at some of my favorite locations I've scouted in the area and see if they fit the vibe you're going for.

Oneloa Beach

Oneloa Beach is also referred to as Ironwoods Beach. This stretch of sandy beach sits north of Lahaina in Kapalua. Sand dunes, with sprawling greenery below the boardwalk are a stunning background for your sunset. Towards the south end of the beach is the Ironwoods Cliffs which are amazing to walk out on.

DT Flemmings

DT Flemmings is the next bay north of Oneloa Beach. This is a nice sandy beach with many trees along the park. There is volcanic rock at either ends, and lots of palm trees. Great option for larger groups. Tends to be a quieter beach.

Kapalua Bay

Nestled between the Montage and Merrimans is Kapalua Bay. A small beach in a protected cove. Above the beach is a grassy knoll with palm trees, as well as rocky point to walk out on. Perfect for sunsets!

Napili Bay

If you are staying in Napili Bay I recommend this beach if you don't want to travel far. It's beautiful, however keep in mind the beach is small and can be crowded. I suggest a smaller family or couple using this as their location for a sunrise or sunset.

Baby Beach

Baby Beach is definitely an island favorite! Can't go wrong with the scenery here looking all kinds of tropical. This is the best place if you want to avoid a crowd. Mornings are best. The sun rises and shines through a big patch of palm trees giving us that perfect light. The water is always calm, and shallow to walk or play in! Great for young families.

Kamehamehaiki Beach

If you're looking for something easy in the heart of Lahaina this is the place! There is also plenty of parking here and you can easily walk Front Street to get something to eat or shop after your session. The park has an iconic Hawaiian Hale and Canoes that can be in the background of some of our photos. As well as a surf break, and lots of fun palm trees.

Launiopoko Beach

This is a paragraph. Click edit and enter your own text. You can make changes like making the text bold, underline or italic. This is a great place for you to tell your clients more about your story and to describe the type of photographer you are. You can come back at any time to make more changes.

Lahaina Town

Truly in the heart of historic Lahaina Town, sits the oldest living banyan tree, the historical courthouse and prison. This is also a fun location to hit all sorts of scenery as well as the Lahaina Boat Harbor and Breakwall.
