Amazing sunsets! And beautiful long walks. A zillion times better than the hyped wailea beach! Must see!
Home of Big Beach. Park has ample parking, lifeguards, porta-potties, and no showers. Be careful going in the water though. There is often a large shore break that occurs here. Perfect for skimboards.
Pay attention to signage. Can have strong undercurrents. Has lifeguard on duty! Beautiful stretch of beach!
No fresh showers nor full bathrooms (port-a-potty) so plan accordingly. The beach makes it worth it. Big beach is excellent!
The waters here are amazingly blue/green! Went on a nice summer day and it literally looked like a beach from a calender. Get sunscreen and swim wear and enjoy the waters here.
This is my favorite beach on Maui. It's one of the last big beaches in South Maui that does not have a hotel on it. This beach is better known as 'Big Makena Beach' or simply 'Big Beach'.
Cool walking around here.
Better snorkeling than Molokini! Can swim for a mile in every direction and discover the hidden gems of Maui. I found a 5ft turtle on my first visit. But it's a $10k fine to touch them!
Once again this is a good spot only in we have a Southerly (Kona Wind). This is a surf beach so for those who love to jump, this is a great spot.
Look out at Molokini from the Big Beach shoreline
Make sure to wear your sunscreen today- looks like a scorcher
Good place to catch waves for bodysurfing or boogie boarding. Just make sure not to faceplant close to shore... little too gravelly. ;-)
it's name definitely fits...this beach is big! not a great place for snorkeling in the middle of the beach (not sure about the sides), but definitely fun for waves.
