In a nutshell: Long, sandy sometimes crowded beach backed by ironwood trees.
Minuses: Crowded on weekends. Afternoons can be very windy.
Sound-bite: “…fantastic place to just set up some chairs and watch…”
Long, sandy sometimes crowded beach backed by ironwoods (read: shade) and full facilities. Next to Kapalua resort and the Ritz Carlton.
This world-class beach is much less developed far less touristy than Ka’anapali Beach, however conditions can become dangerous during high surf with strong rip currents and powerful waves common.
For experienced boogie boarders & surfers there is often good surf during North swells.
Weekends, holidays & pau hana can be crowded.
The beach is named for the man who introduced pineapple to West Maui; his legacy came to an end at the start of 2010 when the last commercial pineapple operations formally ceased in West Maui.

We are here 2/3/22. Waves are not enough for boogie boarding. Have been to slaughterhouse beach twice. That’s the place to boogie board. Be aware the waves can change quickly. Also there are about 30 stairs to get up and down at slaughterhouse.

Are dogs allowed on the beach. What are restrictions of any?
For this beach, is it still good for summer time? Or is it more of winter-ish beach for boogie boarding?
Aloha Ian – this beach is great year round. 🙂
Typically winter is better for North swell. Summer can be a lake, but sometimes might have some shore break, but if you’re looking for big waves, winter is the time for sure during a North swell.
