Maui Pictures - Launiupoko Beach
Maui Pictures - Launiupoko Beach - One mile south of Puamana Beach Park is Launiupoko Beach Park. Now if you can say that right three times you win a prize. Nah, just kidding, but if you can say it you’re doing pretty good. Launiupoko is located at the first traffic light heading south out of Lahaina. It has a large grassy lawn with picnic tables, BBQs, and lots and lots of shade.
At Launiupoko Beach there are restrooms and fresh water showers but no lifeguard. Lauiniupoko’s proximity to the island of Lanai gives this beach its gorgeous views. It is a popular beach with locals on the weekends and holidays so it can be crowded. Parking is limited but there is overflow parking is across the street.
There is a small lagoon created by a break-wall in the middle of the park with soft greyish sand at the left end. Launiupoko Beach is a well-known spot for longboarding, stand up paddling, and beginning surf lessons. The wave is usually nice and clean. There are lots of surf breaks to choose from beginner to advanced. Here’s a little tip. The wave at the north and of the beach park where the grass ends is often not crowded.
