I have read about the Makena cloud that sometimes forms on most afternoons over the Makena State Beach area. One recent reviewer of a Makena hotel said her family drove to a different beach each afternoon to avoid it, but most reviewers never mention it. Most guidebooks don't mention it either, but Fodor's does.
I was curious how often the Makena cloud forms and when does it normally start and end (blow away?)?
Also, how far north does the cloud cover extend? Is it enough of an annoyance to choose a hotel outside of its reach -- like in Wailea rather than Makena?
