Often voted the #1 beach in Maui, Big Beach has captured the hearts of those lucky enough to experience it. Makena Beach is huge and offers perfect white sand, turquoise water and gorgeous scenery. As far as tropical paradise goes, you won’t find much better.

Breaking waves on the steep sloping sand, however, cause a seriously dangerous shorebreak, resulting in broken necks and serious injuries every year. While we love this beach, we definitely warn against it for children and inexperienced swimmers.
