Big Beach at Makena
Wailea Alanui Road, Wailea-Makena, Maui, Hawaii

The Big Beach at Makena stretches nearly two thirds of a mile and is 100 feet deep—making it a very big beach indeed. Although it’s official name is Oneloa Beach, it gets its nickname name because it’s the much larger of two beaches at Makena State Park. While Little Beach is well known for being one of the premiere nude beaches in Hawaii, Big Beach is renowned for its size, buttery soft white sands, scenic beauty, rideable waves (for experienced boarders), and perfect snorkeling and swimming conditions when the waters are calm. However, during the spring and summer, its strong shorebreak and rip currents make it unsafe for inexperienced swimmers. In which case, you can happily pass the time lying on the soft warm sand and taking in the gorgeous scenery.
