Baldwin Beach Park
Baldwin Beach Park, on the north shore of Maui and just west of the plantation town Paia, is a noted destination for bodyboarding and bodysurfing. The white-sand beach is surrounded by dunes, ironwood trees, and coconut palms, and offers views of the West Maui Mountains. There is a lagoon created by a flat reef wall that provides a calmer place to swim and let the children play, and this beach is manned by a lifeguard. Amenities include showers, a pavilion, picnic tables, grills, firepits, and nearby soccer and baseball fields.
