We enjoyed this beach several times while we were in Hawaii. There was a high surf warning with shore breaking waves but we had a blast. We enjoyed the sun and the waves. This beach has paid parking which at the time was $10 for the day and there is a little walk from the parking lot to the beach.

Of all the gorgeous beaches I've seen on Maui, this is one of my favorites because it's so beautiful and not very crowded. The sand is soft and not as rocky as some other locations and the water is a beautiful turquoise. I'd heard that the waves can be pretty strong at certain times of the year but it wasn't rough when I was there. I even saw a giant sea turtle taking a snooze on the beach!

I cannot recommend Darci and her team highly enough. They created the most beautiful wedding we could ever ask for and made every single one of our visions come true. Being from the UK we were initially concerned that time-difference would make planning our wedding more difficult but Darci was available at all hours and no-doubt some of the most productive planning conversations we had were in the middle of the night for her and she never hesitated to make us feel completely at ease. Darci also not only made our wedding day incredible but our whole holiday in Hawaii was significantly enhanced because of the input she had in planning our trips and recommending places to visit for ourselves and all of our guests. From booking nail appointments to hooking us up with the most amazing private snorkelling trip to Molokini Crater, her professionalism and devotion to her work is unquestionable. Our actual wedding day went completely seamlessly all down to Darci, she had everything covered from every angle and her staff maintained the highest standards throughout! Thank you thank you and thank you again Darci for a magical time that we will never ever forget, we are truly privileged to have had the most incredible wedding planner who has know become a true friend to us! Penny is a one-of-a-kind photographer! She allowed us to have fun and feel so relaxed throughout our whole wedding, not to mention the gold class photos the she managed to produce for us. She went above and beyond to ensure we felt at ease whilst always maintaining her professional approach. We did not give specific instruction to Penny, we allowed her to be creative and explore the kind of photographs she wanted to take, this was the best decision we could have ever made! Our photos did not look like your ‘typical’ staged and posed wedding photos, they are expressive, fun and romantic with the beautiful scenery and views captured exactly as we saw them (if not even better!). Thank you so much Penny, we are so privileged to say not only did we have the most incredible wedding photographer but we have also found a true friend in you!

Beautiful beach in Maui. The Makena State Park is great for families. There are facilities for your use and lots of parking. The beach is huge...lots of room for everyone.
