Which side of Maui is best for surfing?
To watch pro surfers in action, head to Honolua Bay and Hookipa Beach near Lower Paia during winter big wave season. East of Hookipa, you’ll find Maui’s most famous surf spot for big wave surfing: Peahi, also known as “Jaws.” During big swells, surfers are towed into Peahi’s massive waves by jet-skis.
Can you surf at Kaanapali Beach?
Although Kaanapali does not have a wide variety of surf spots, the sandy beach does offer fun body surfing, skim boarding, and boogie boarding. These sports can be especially fun if you are staying at one of the many resorts that line Kaanapali beach.
