If, like us, you like nudist beaches you will be happy to have this beach to go to while in Maui. Kee in mind it is quite far for the parking lot and you'll have to be in a reasonable shape to get to it. Clean beach with nice waves and interesting individuals surrounding you.

Beautiful little beach, now a lot easier to access than it used to be. You'll encounter the loveliest group of free spirits here !

A stunning sandy beach nestled between some rock cliffs. A very shot hike over from Big Beach. Worth the trek. Every sunday there is a sunset drum circle which attracts more of a party scene, and offers great people watching! The sand is soft and golden. The water teal and clear. and the perfect place to view the sunset!

Spectacular beach for like-minded and free spirited nudists! Clean. Great waves to nude body surf. No gawkers since it's clearly a nude beach. GO!

After parking at Big Beach, we clamored up the little rocky hill (only takes a minute - but wear something on your feet) toward what we had learned was Little Beach. Though we still couldn't get a glimpse of Little Beach, we were delighted to see the great view of Big Beach from this high point and took some pictures.... More

Beautiful secluded beach with a flair for open minded guests. You will see complete nudity mixed with families who are in normal beach going attire

This hidden gem is great for anyone who is free thinking and wants to get in touch with the sun, beach, and nature. Generally, the beach is occupied by a couple of groups. Gays on one side, straight couples on the other, interspersed with hippies from every background.... all areas of course of clothing optional. Don't miss the weekly Sunday... More

First - it does take a bit of effort to get here. Go to Makena State Park (Big Beach) and walk to the north. There is a cliff with a well worn path/climb - depending on you I would suggest wearing some type of shoe rather than flip flops - it's volcanic rock and pretty rough in spots. Once over... More

another great beach in Maui / Kihei area. Water is clear if it hasn't been raining and there are a lot of people - but we still had a great time
