Best Locations For Outdoor Yoga


Kamaole Beach III

Located in South Kihei, “Kam” III features a large grassy lawn overlooking the ocean – making it a great place to practice outdoor yoga. Come early, and you’ll have the park almost to yourself, or lay out your mat at sunset and enjoy spectacular views.

Polo Beach

Polo Beach is located on the southern edge of Wailea. Set up your practice in the grass beneath palm trees, or sneak over to the south side of the beach fronting Polo Beach Club. This side of the beach is tucked away and a bit more quiet than the portion of the beach in front of the Fairmont Kea Lani, making it an excellent option for a quiet yoga practice – especially at sunrise.

Sugar Beach

Sugar Beach is the longest beach on Maui, so finding a private patch of sand for practice is easy. It’s best to get your practice in early at Sugar Beach before the tradewinds pick up and blow sand all over your mat.
