    We had been told that Little Beach regularly had excellent waves for body boarding...and YES it does!! Ended up visiting twice as a result! The waves are exciting to say the least! Of some note though...  more »

    I wish I could visit this beach again right now. We had a blast here and wish we had known about it sooner in our trip! We went earlier in the day, a little before noon. The drum circle started to pic...  more »

    You access the beach by going to the parking lot for Big Beach in Makena State Park. When you reach Big Beach, go all the way to the right where you'll see what looks like a 25-foot cliff. However, th...  more »

    Best beach in Maui IMO. The waves are great for intermediate body surfers/swimmers and the vibe of the beach is very friendly. The climb from big beach to little beach is easy for the able bodied person. For first timers, the nudity varies by the day and by time. 85% topless/nude at the peak around noon to about 5-10% by sunset. On Sundays the topless/nude % is lower. Bring sunscreen, an umbrella, water, and an open mind. Leave your bathing suit and that judgy attitude at home/ the hotel.

    Gorgeous nude beach with a lovely collection of eclectic people. Sunday is drum circle day & dancing. Note: no lifeguards & the trail is difficult to pass for some, not handicap accessible.

    Really love how relaxing this place is. No judgements. Everyone is pretty relaxed here. Make sure to bring a smile!

    Little gem of a beach, fairly well known because of its clothing optional policy, so beautiful! The waves are serene, the water seems a deeper blue! Park at Big Beach, where there is a local Taco truck and porta-potties, hike across the beach and over the hill to get to Little Beach. The hike is a bit difficult since recent rain has caused some damage, especially if you're carrying chairs, etc., and wearing flip flops, be careful. Put sunscreen on your buns🍔

    If you have the opportunity to visit little beach on Sunday afternoons...do it. Lots of fun, drum circle. Amazing waves for surfing, boogie and body boarding, or just a nice swim. If you're lucky you'll see some whales in the distance, always an amazing sunset.
