Big Beach aka Makena Beach

Big Beach is reportedly the largest beach in Maui and the biggest stretch of beach that has not been developed.

Big Beach

It is big and it is wide. The surf was a little on the rough side. South Maui is kind of lonely, just a lot of beaches and a lot of lava rock.

'Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Area Reserve

The lava flow at 'Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Area Reserve. See my "things to do" page for more pictures on this area....oh that was a fun hike let me tell you.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of lava rocks & nice beaches
  • Cons:Not many amenities when you get this far south of Maui
  • In a nutshell:It was nice to go down south to get a different perspective of Maui and see some more beaches.
