The shore break might be a bit rough for some, especially children and elderly, but it’s still exhilarating without being overly dangerous for most adults. The views are incredible with Molokini and Kaho’olawe in the background. There’s a short trail to the right which takes you to Little Beach (clothing optional) and is worth the hike to the top for the aerial view even if you don’t go down to LB. The sand is some of the softest on Maui. However, a massive amount of sand gets kicked up in the shore break and will get in your bathing suit. Also, there’s a food truck serving tacos at the first of the three entrances to Big Beach.

This is a huge beach with lifeguards. The lifeguards are there for a reason. The waves look deceiving in a manner that they crash hard on the shore. I lost my glasses and hurt my back here from trying to surf it. While searching for my glasses (the water is crystal clean and easily swimmable 15 feet out) I found someone else's just laying there between coral 10 feet down. The current could easily take you though. I had to actually help a girl out to get out of the water. Remember to leave in a diagonal she said. I also saw a man with a baby in the crashing waves and he lost his grip for a few seconds. Nothing happened but the guards were warning that this is not a children beach or for weak swimmers!

Big Beach is awesome! We started bringing our son and his cousin here years ago and this beach is terrific AND popular. Usually a food truck on the way and at the park gate. Parking can be tricky, but keep trolling. Fun people watching and you'll see whales here too. Be careful in the surf, it can be pretty big. Sometimes some trash and foot hazards on the way to the beach. Have fun!!!!

This is indeed a big beach, it seems to go on forever. Safe area to swim and shallow but the tide can pick up the further out you go. Free parking and temporary / portable toilets on site. In December the weather wasn’t the best but on a clear evening this is a good spot to watch a sunset.
