A Good Swimming Beach on the Sunny Side
Charley Young Beach (sometimes misspelled Charlie Young Beach) is the north part of Kamaole Beach Park # 1 in Kihei, on the south side of Maui. You can enter this section of the beach from its north end on Kaiau Place, just off of South Kihei Road, across from the Maui Vista condos.
This beach is popular with local residents, though tourists often discover it as they walk along Kam 1 Beach. It’s a good place for swimming, snorkeling (along the edges near the rocks), and stand-up paddleboarding. Conditions are best in the morning, because there is usually more wind in the afternoon.
