Easily Maui's most spectacular white-sand location, Makena Beach boasts deep-blue, crystal-clear water and views of the nearby islands of Molokini and Kahoolawe.

You can bodysurf when the waves are up or snorkel when no surf is present. At the west end of Makena, you can access "Little Beach" at the foot of Puu Olai by scrambling over the boundary headland. This is known as a clothing-optional beach and the area is occasionally "raided" by the police. Whether you choose to spend your time at the bigger Makena Beach or "Little Beach," both are great for getting some fresh, salty air.
