Easily Maui's most spectacular white-sand beach, 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, but skinny-dipping is illegal in Hawaii, and the area is occasionally "raided" by the police. Topless bathing is, however, within the law.
