A small naturist beach in Makena State Park.
From Kahului, Maui Airport:

Coming out of the airport you are heading approx. west. Continue west past Costco and K-mart and across the Hana Hwy. (route # 36). Continue past Lowe's Hardware and Office Max to Puunene Ave. (route #350)

At signal, turn left towards Kihei/Makena. Bare to right in about 1/2 mile, and you are now on route #311. Continue on route #311 to the second signal (route #31-Piilani Hwy.) Turn left. Continue to the end of the highway where you be forced to turn right and continue downhill.

At the signal at the bottom of the hill, turn left (Wailea Alanui Rd.). As you travel this road, you will see the Pu'u Olai cinder cone in the distance. One mile past the Maui Prince Hotel, look for the yellow emergency telephone #17 (on left). Turn right at the sign for Makena State Park and park in the lot if space is available, or along the parking lot access road.

Lock your car! Do not leave anything of value in the car - particularly in plain sight.

Big Beach is dead ahead as you face the water. To reach Little Beach, walk north (to the right) to the end of Big Beach and climb up the lava-flow trail and down the other side to Little Beach. All ages are able to make it up this short climb with no worries, however the approach on the Big Beach side can sometimes be tough if a big ocean swell has ripped the sand out. If this is the case, prepare to get a little wet.
