Little Beach Review

Accessed only by a steep path through a cinder cone that separates it from Big Beach, Little Beach is a picturesque Maui location for those who can brave the fact that it’s a largely nude beach.

Perfect sand, occasional breaking waves and interesting people-watching make this beach a favorite for locals and a must for visitors who wish to experience a true Sunday Funday, Maui style, including drum circles, fire dancing and more.
