Table of Contents
Of all three of the beaches that make up the triad of Kamaole Beach Parks in Kihei, Kamaole Beach Park #3 is the one that is the most different. The beach here is beautiful as well as the others but it is much smaller. It also has rock promontories on either end that can provide an interesting walk. The beach has the appearance of being much rougher than the other two simply because many of the waves break along these rock promontories often sending huge splashes into the air. Kamaole Beach 3 may have a smaller beach area but it also has a much larger grass area and as such provides the perfect spot for picnics and family gatherings. This has long been a favorite beach park for local residents for this very reason.

Kamaole #3 the last of the Kamaole Beaches
Snorkeling can also be good at Kamaole Beach 3 if you swim out to the rock outcroppings. There can be surges as the waves get close to the rocks however so you really need to exercise caution and good judgment to avoid injury. Boogie boarding is also possible here when the conditions are right. Because the rock promontory on the north end provides a partial protection from the prevailing trade winds which generally whip up in the afternoons, the actual beach area will remain calm somewhat longer than the other two Kamaole beaches.

Beach Amenities
There are plenty of amenities at Kamaole 3. It has a large restroom, showers, picnic tables, barbecue stations, a large shaded lawn area, a large un-shaded lawn area which is great for playing touch football or throwing a Frisbee, and a lifeguard tower.

Ocean Caution
Please be advised that all beaches and ocean locations in Hawaii can be potentially dangerous including this location. Be completely aware of the ocean conditions prior to entering the water and of course, never turn your back on the ocean when you are on the shoreline. It should also be noted that all shorelines and beaches in Hawaii, including this one, can be frequented by sharks, jellyfish and other sea creatures which can provide potential harm to people entering the water
