Upper Westside Protected Bays

Napili, Kapalua, Honolua
  • Strong trade winds along with a small swell are causing choppy waters.  Watch for surgy conditions and decreased water clarity around the rocky shoreline. You may be able to find decent shelter and calm waters in Honolua Bay today. Take a look at the bay from the upper lookout on the side of the road. If you see surf deep in the bay go elsewhere. If it looks calm it may be the best spot in West Maui today. Conditions may be nice there as the day progresses and it warms up.
  • Check out this webcam from Napili Sunset.
  • Surf 2-3ft.
  • Conditions may vary amongst the different bays.
  • Isolated showers before noon. Mostly sunny, with a high near 77. Windy, with an east northeast wind 26 to 29 mph, with gusts as high as 41 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Olowalu Mile Marker 14

Black Rock, Kahekili-Airport Beach
  • Strong winds and small surf however yesterday the water clarity was not great even though conditions signaled it should have been nice. The strong winds are causing chop that is churning the water. Consider heading south for better conditions. The south most snorkeling spots may present the best snorkeling today.
  • Don’t get your car stuck in the sand and be sure to park completely off the highway!
  • Surf 1-2ft.
  • Turtles! They are protected so give them space but enjoy.
