A part of the allure of Maui's Big Beach, or Oneloa Beach its local name, is that it is located in one of the most remote areas of the island, in the undeveloped Makena State Park. The beach, as the name suggests, is one of the largest, approximately 1.5 miles of golden sand, lapped by the turquoise waters of the Pacific.
It lies on the southwest coast of Maui. Beware though, just over the hill is its little sister, Little Beach. Little Beach is the island's most famous nudist beach. Although illegal, the authorities generally turn a blind eye. Whichever of the two beaches you choose, the waters will be welcoming, the sand will be pristine and the view from the rocks that separate the two beaches is truly breathtaking.
