Little beach is now closed for an indeterminate amount of time. The drum line crazies have, after repeated warnings by state officials blown it for everyone.

Best experienced on Sunday afternoon for drummers sunset. If you are looking for out of the beatten path, fun, hippie style exprience, search no more. It is clothing optional, but you will feel comfortable even if you are not going nude yourself... it might even prompt you to try! Drummers, people dancing, jugglers with fire at sunset. We even got to sea whales jumping off the water from there (the only ones in our whole trip). Sooo good that we postponed our return to home to go back there the following Sunday :)

We've been to many clothing optional beaches and Little Beach fits right near the top of our enjoyment list. As you can read in other reviews - it takes a bit of effort to get to Little Beach. There is a paid parking lot at Makena Beach and free on-street parking located a goodly walk from the beach. We were there on a week day during covid and the parking lot was wide open. I would observe that the climb up the lava rock cliff was dicier than I'd expected (I'm a senior citizen in good shape) as it's steep plus gravel creates some traction issues. I wore flip flops and next time I think I'll wear tennis shoes. I carried a beach bag and chair which was about all I could recommend anyone to carry on the climb (up and back down). How do people carry a large cooler? Once there, the beach is very pleasant. There is a clear pecking order much like what I'd read about Little Beach before hand. The first area is for locals as many sitting there seemed acquainted with each other. The far end is dominated by M/M beach goers and we saw a little PDA. The middle is for the visitors and newbies. I'd say 50%+ were totally nude...Maybe as high as 75%. Ages ranged from the 20's to the 70's. There was a wide range of body types - and no one cares about that at all. The beach is pleasant, quiet, and the crowd was well behaved. We experienced no gawkers - though we wouldn't have cared either way. We'll return!

I spent two long afternoons at Little Beach with college roommate from 30 years ago. He moved to Maui several years ago, and had told me what a relaxing, freeing experience it is to spend time naked at Little Beach. I was not dissappointed.

Still one of our favorite nude beaches after more than 20 years of visiting! NOT a big fan of the sunday drum circles and parties... too many clothed people! but love any other day there!
