Where: South Beach, Maui
Activities: Fishing, snorkeling, swimming

Mākena Beach State Park is one of Maui's signature beaches. With white sands extending nearly 2/3 of a mile long, it is one of the largest, undeveloped beaches in Maui. Enjoy relaxing on the beach with only nature in sight. Nestled between two black-lava outcroppings, Mākena offers protection from the trade winds and provides great views of the islands of Molokini and Kahoʻolawe

The area is divided into two beaches known as Big Beach and Little Beach. Big Beach is located south of Wailea and provides a secluded alternative to more crowded beaches in Kāʻanapali and Lāhainā. Little Beach is a small cove without amenities and no lifeguard. 

Please note: Hawaiʻi's ocean and beach conditions are as unique as the islands themselves. Visit HIOCEANSAFETY.COM which constantly monitors the surf, wind, and reports from public safety officials that directly affect the conditions for safety of Hawaiian beaches. Use the hazard signs on HIOCEANSAFETY.COM as well to quickly assess conditions and help you find the appropriate beach for your visit.
