What to Bring

Snorkeling and Surf

  • Check a live webcam of Kamaole Beach Park II here.
  • While Kam II itself does not have extensive coral formations, the southern end of the beach connects to Kam III Beach, which provides better snorkeling opportunities. You can swim or walk to Kam III to explore the underwater world.
  • On calm mornings, stand-up paddle boarding is a great option at Kam II. The long stretch of all 3 Kamaole beaches make for a beautiful paddle. Just be aware that the wind can pick up strongly and quickly from late morning through the day, so the earlier you go out the better. 
  • There can be some elevated surf with summer south swells. This will impede snorkeling but can sometimes make for fun boogie boarding. Just be sure to exercise plenty of caution, and if in doubt, don’t go out!

Environment and Seasonal Variation

  • Kam II Beach features soft, golden sand and clear, turquoise waters. It offers a peaceful setting with a grassy area, shade trees, and picnic tables, providing a suitable spot for picnicking, relaxation, and beachfront activities.
  • Kam II is calm and beautiful most mornings year round. It is common for the wind to become strong and gusty from the middle of the day, so this beach is best early. 
  • Responsible tourism practices, such as proper disposal of trash and the use of reef-safe sunscreen, can contribute to the long-term conservation of this stunning coastal environment on Maui. 
  • It’s important for visitors to respect the local rules and regulations, including not touching or damaging the coral, not collecting or harassing marine life, and not disturbing the natural habitat.

Remember to respect the natural beauty and environment of Kamaole Beach Park II by leaving no trace and following any posted rules and regulations. Kam II is part of a trio of beaches that are favored for their accessibility, natural beauty, and relaxed atmosphere. Whether you’re looking to snorkel, paddle, swim, picnic, or witness a stunning sunset, Kam II provides a picturesque and enjoyable beach experience on Maui’s southwest coast.
