D.T. Fleming Beach Park
The long and wide D.T. Fleming Beach Park is a great beach for those wanting to swim, snorkel, body board, and even surf. Bordered by sea cliffs, the D.T. Fleming Beach Park runs from one side of the cove on Honokahua Bay to the the 16th hole of the Kapalua golf course at Makaluapuna Point. The beach is generally quiet, except it can get pretty busy on the weekends. There are plenty of shady areas alongside the shore provided by the palm trees and the ironwood trees making it a great spot to have a picnic. You will find a shallow sandbar offshore that extends out to the surf. The beach itself can be fairly steep and the water can sometimes be too cloudy for snorkeling, though.
In the afternoons at D.T. Fleming Beach, it can get quite windy. High surf and dangerous conditions in the water can occur during seasonal changing. Beginner swimmers should not be in the water during time of rough waters and big waves due to strong rip tides and currents.
D.T. Fleming Beach is one of the few beaches with lifeguards on duty. There are plenty of facilities to be used by beach goers such as: picnic tables, picnic shelters, barbecue grills, showers, restrooms, drinking water, phones, and a parking lot. Located in the upper northwestern part of Maui, the D.T. Fleming Beach is one to be enjoyed by many. With comfort and fun in mind, this beach makes it an ideal spot for some great fun in the sun.
