Little Beach Tours

Little Beach
Little Beach is smaller and more sheltered than many of the beaches on Maui. It is accessed by walking from the neighboring Big Beach, though the two are separated by a large lava rock wall and a five-minute hike. Its fine, white stretch of sand is only slightly more difficult to access than the average beach, but crowds are reduced here. Conditions are often good for both surfing and boogie boarding, and lava rock trails around the beach area lead to some smaller coves and viewpoints of the beaches of Makena State Park.

Also known as "Puʻu Olai,” the beach attracts a free-spirited crowd, with drum circles and fire dancing every Sunday evening. Aside from the blue waters and fine sands, it is a great spot to do some snorkeling (pending current conditions) and watch a famous Hawaiian sunset away from the crowds.

Practical Info

Little Beach is located just north of Makena Beach (Big Beach) in South Maui. You can find it by walking on the sand after turning right from Big Beach. You will come upon a small, rocky cliff with a path leading over it that leads to Little Beach. Be aware that Little Beach has been known for its nude sunbathers, and if you’re going for sunset, be sure to bring a flashlight for the return walk.
