This beach is beautiful and popular amongst nudists. Great for swimming, boogie boarding or sunbathing. Some shady spots. It's a trek up the rocks so anyone with mobility issues likely cannot manage. It is much smaller than Big Beach (naturally) and popular so it can get pretty busy later in the day. If you don't like crowds (particularly nude ones... More

This smaller beach at Makena State Park is a short climb on rock outcropping a to get to the informally (not official) nude beach area. Big beach is a lovely large sandy beach area. When we arrived it was a bit misty and the surf at Big Beach was flagged as dangerous. There was a bit of a drop off... More

What a great beach! The sand is as soft as powder, great for body surfing. People are friendly , some totally nude, some only partly. No big deal. Our teen kids loved playing in the waves, totally naked, as they love to do. No other kids their age, however. Our son played on boogie boards with some ten year old... More

You like a nude beach? If so, this is probably the best in the world. Great sand, nice people, sweet ocean waves

We visited big beach and had to hike a steep incline to get to little beach. It is a very small patch of beach with lots of locals who have opted to not wear clothing. We were there early, but I imagine the sunset views would have been spectacular.

This beach is by far the most beautiful beach on Maui! My boyfriend had never been to a nude beach before, and he came away from the experience wanting to travel the world's nude beaches. It was crystal clear water, good people watching (bring your sunglasses!), and gorgeous sand. We described it like clothed beaches are like Los Angeles, whereas... More

No need for swim attire! Park at Big Beach then hike over the hill to get to the secluded, pretty beach! The hike is very short but a bit tenuous, especially since rain has done some damage. My Baby is 71 and he and I struggled with our chairs, umbrella and bags, but we made it slowly! Wonderful time!

The wife and I just returned from our two week pilgrimage to Little Beach, and yes we are tourists. That being said we are very comfortable in our skin and enjoyed LB to the extreme. No clothes, no worries, and amazingly good vibes. Good people with kind hearts and inviting personalities were everywhere. There were some people wearing clothes which... More

If, like us, you like nudist beaches you will be happy to have this beach to go to while in Maui. Kee in mind it is quite far for the parking lot and you'll have to be in a reasonable shape to get to it. Clean beach with nice waves and interesting individuals surrounding you.
