This is my favorite beach anywhere. Love the climb to get there, makes it feel really secluded. A beautiful beach. Being a naturist it's hard to find gems like this in the world. As of yet, of all my travels to Hawaii I still have not made to the Sunday drum circle. I hear it's really fun. Something about being... More

rugged trail to reach Little beach, but I enjoyed the visit. I didn't make it to the Sunday "drumming circle" but would like to return someday.

the hike over to this beach was a little difficult but I have older kids and we liked that part, don't take small children, its too difficult of a hike (they said the easier route is washed out right now and we had to climb over some sharp lava ledges/cliff that if a you fell would be seriously injured); also...

A beautiful quiet beach in Maui that is worth a visit I can assure you will be back. Be careful of the waves, if you have kid's with you do be carful, there's a little and a bug beach absolutely beautiful.

Great place to soak up the sun naked and free. There are all types of people there who just enjoy nature at its best. Went there several times over the week that I was in Kihei, and would have gone more if time would have allowed. Enjoyed the far end of the beach the most, since that's were all the... More

I really like this beach on Maui. It is a clothing optional beach and not everyone is naked. Most are, but there are some that are not. It is not a "legal" nude beach but it is out of sight, out of mind so it is allowed. There is plenty of room on the beach. There seems to be a... More

When visiting Maui we always make a point to visit Little Beach. It's peaceful and secluded, and always enjoyable if one is comfortable around plenty of nudity. Within the last few weeks storms have altered the topography where you access Little Veach from the north end of Makena Beach (Big Beach). Whereas in the past it was possible to get... More

Little Beach is a must stop if you live on the wild side, but a little far for au natural if you live on the West Side (try Makaluapuna Point/Dragon's Teeth). Little Beach is a truly unique Maui crowd that you won't find anywhere else. Just a short walk up a dirt trail at the end of Big Beach you... More

Small nude beach in Mekena Park. Cool spot if your a cool cat. Lots of hippies and sun bathers. It's a little hard to find but if you get to Big Beach you'll figure it out.

Little Beach is right next to Big Beach and is considered a nude beach. The trail to the beach is a little difficult but manageable. Don't go there thinking that you can get some good pictures. You will find people of all ages there sunning themselves.
