The west side is best for swimming. A reef at the east and middle can make it difficult to enter the water.

Oneloa Beach, which is better known as Ironwoods Beach, can be found in the Lahaina area of west Maui. You'll find it located right next to (west of) D.T. Fleming Beach Park, behind all of the condominium / townhouse buildings here and just to the west of The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua.

In this land of gates and guard shacks there really isn't a good parking option here. You can find plenty of parking at nearby D.T. Fleming Beach Park, but it's still a bit of a walk along the various paved paths to get here

There is a lot of guest parking all over the residences here that you can easily access but risk being towed so we don't recommend that.

That's the main reason that it's not all that great and why I would just stick to D.T. Fleming Beach Park. If you do make it here, and the ocean is nice and calm then there can be good swimming and even snorkeling down at the far left (west) end of the beach.

If the waves are coming in good then it can be a little rough down there so maybe just relax and watch the surfers on the right (east) side instead.
