The beach is named after the man who introduced pineapple farming to Hawaii. It’s one of the most popular beaches on the island, especially with surfers and body boarders in the winter. The water can get pretty rough, so swimming and snorkelling is advised only when the water is calm. There are lifeguards. The beach is fully kitted out for a family day out, though. There are picnic tables, restrooms, showers, grills, a parking lot and pay phones. It’s not as touristy as some of Hawaii’s more famous beaches.

We enjoyed the beach! The waves were not horrible so we were able to swim and enjoy. The facilities were good. The showers were helpful!
The Fleming beach was is not mentioned as one best snorkeling beaches and we went there only to mark that we saw all the north-west beaches of Maui. There were some waves so we did not went to snorkel on the rocky left side but to the middle of the left area where the water shadows pointed to be a reef over there. And it was! Not a coral reef but a strange rocky formation full deep crakes and small caves and stone arches. The depth of water over this reef is about 4-8 meters and more than that so even with some waves it is not unsafe shallow water. The reef is very large and we snorkel only on the left side area without reaching its outer end because the waves were higher there. Due to the waves the water was not quite crystal clear but the visibility was good. We snorkel about one hour and half and it was great. There were not many fish but we encounter three turtles medium to big and in my opinion it was the most impressive underwater rocky landscape that I encounter in Maui. On my snorkeling marking scale in that day the score for Fleming Beach were 5 from a maximum of 5 point. For the snorkeling fans that enjoy more the underwater landscape than the marine fauna I warmly recommend Fleming Beach as very pleasant snorkeling experience.
This beach was good. I didn't life how there was lots of people and a less of a secluded beach(like slaughterhouse beach). The sand was not maintained and had lots of sticks, rocks and other things in the sand. The people behind us were working and this fence so all we heard was hammering and saws. I know it's not the beaches fault but there is other resorts and houses behind them that could be working on stuff. However I did enjoy the washrooms, feet washing station, and lifeguards. This beach was good for boogie boarding! There was some massive waves crashing in which was great for the boogie boarders but I wouldn't recommend it to small children or elderly. I asked some people who were snorkeling if they saw any fish and the said yes. Overall it's a good beach but needs to be cleaned up more.
Beautiful beach with plenty of shade if needed from trees growing along its edge. On clear days there is good snorkeling on the south/western side. Lots of sea turtles the day I snorkelled there. I also surfed a fun little right on the other side of the beach which breaks over a flat lava reef with some sandy areas. There is an expensive burger place right off the beach with 25 dollar burgers. I didn't eat there. There are showers and restrooms as well as a lifegaurd station.
Every time I have been here, the wind is blowing so hard it’s difficult to enjoy the beach. With that in mind, if your body surfing or there to enjoy the waves, it is a lot of fun!
