Although being nude on a beach is illegal in Maui, the officials turn a blind eye to the naked bodies that are on display here at Little Beach. The easiest way to get to this 'clothing optional beach' is to park at the parking lot...More

Awesome clothing optional beach. Would recommend to anyone who doesn't like tan-lines. No gawkers, no pervs. Just people wanting to let everything hangout. Mostly regulars. The sand and water are perfect.

Lots of kids and families, but there's a lot of wildlife to see. Don't let the name fool you - it's beautiful here

Third time to Maui and little beach is always on the list. We spent 5 of the 7 days there. How great it is be naked on the most beautiful beach in the world.

This is a delightful beach, fabulous swimming, trees, laid back and quiet - unless it is Sunday night. On Sunday night, get there by 5 for a 6:45 sunset. Enjoy local drummers, musicians, vendors, and gather with locals for a very festive evening that includes...More

Nudity is not legal here, but, at Little Beach it’s a secluded top less beach of a lot of locals. (Please respect their privacy) no starring, no cameras, no cheap thrills. If you show the locals respect, they will be respectful and welcoming. If you...More
