Such a must do and so convenient to get to if you are staying in Wailea. Really friendly guide and the horses were well cared for and responsive. Such an incredible experience to ride on the beach. I will definitely be back the next time in Maui. My husband even enjoyed it and he was a first time rider.

Our guide was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area. She was so sweet to the horses and quickly made us comfortable with the horses. She took her time to explain how to lead the horse and what not to do. We had a beautiful stroll along the beach and through the lava fields. I had such an amazing... More

The Horses were ok and our Tour Guide was very friendly. You get sun screen and Snacks After The Ride. Thats Great but for 300 Dollar a must.. The Ride... More

My husband and I took a sunset ride to celebrate our anniversary. We did not book it as a private tour, but it ended up being that way when the other people cancelled. Everything about our experience with Makena Stables was out of this world fantastic. The ride itself was so beautiful. The pictures truly do not do it justice.... More

We did the sunset ride with just one other couple and the ride was amazing. The horses were very clean, healthy, and well cared for. You will really enjoy this ride with it's views of the ocean, lava fields, woods, and volcano. The staff was GREAT and if you never have ridden a horse, they will help you out before... More

My Husband was turning 30 and Loves horses so though I had never in my life got on a horse I thought we should do this. I couldn't be happier with the overall experience. We drove along the long winding road through the lava fields which in itself was a treat. Once we arrived we were greeted by a dog... More

I was eager to see this part of Maui as I was staying up in the Kaanapali area. As others have mentioned, it does seem like you are driving until there is no road left, but the result is a wonderful ride on horses that appear to be well taken care of. We rode with Sonya in a small group... More

My niece and I were looking to ride horses, but wanted to be in a beautiful location. We found all of this through Makena Stables. Pat and his ranch hands are wonderful. Reservations were easy over the phone. The drive to Makena Stables was enjoyable and good directions by Pat helped us find this remote ranch. We met our guide... More

Horseback riding on the beach in Maui is definitely a 'once in a lifetime' experience! We also were thrilled for the opportunity to ride up a mountain and enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean from horseback. Whale watching was pretty cool from up there! Our guide Sonya (sp?) was great, we learned a lot from her and enjoyed getting... More
