Maui Pictures - Puamana Beach
Maui Pictures - Puamana Beach - Very close to Lahaina, just as your headed out of town travelling south is Puamana Beach Park. Puamana is small beach park with picnic tables and lots of shade. It is a good spot for beginning surfers and usually breaks during a swell from the southerly direction. Sometimes a large northwest swell will break very nicely here as well, but this spot is more consistent in the summertime.
The waves break right near the shore so you don't have to paddle too far. It is a perfect wave for longboarding as they are mostly gentle and usually range from 1 to 3 feet. Views of Lanai, and sometimes the western end of Molokai, the flat and dry side of Molokai are visible from Puamana Beach. If you can see Molokai pretty well then look even closer.
