NileGuide Expert Says:
The insiders' hangout and a must-see for the scenery, surf and people. Remoteness, high surf and ocean vistas are found here. The first of its three parking lots adjoins "Big Beach," which is separated from "Little Beach" (known for nudity and raves), by a rocky outcrop. Use caution!

Makena State Park, south of Wailea, includes "Big Beach" and "Little Beach" nearby. "Little" is known for its nude sunbathers. Big Beach, or "Oneloa Beach," is perfect for sunbathing and body boarding. Little Beach, or "Pu`u Olai Beach," is a short hike away, over a steep lava outcrop. On Sundays, you can join the crowd here for drumming and fire dancing.
