A bit of a climb from Big Beach to Little Beach. It is secluded, but was pretty busy considering to climb to get there. The beach has good views of ocean. It is a clothing optional beach

OK First it's a long drive out of Wailea and then a drive down dirt roads to Big Beach - a very nice and sprawling beach. So you turn right and walk up a pretty steep incline over some cliff rocks to get to little...More

I was not excited about the hiking up and around the hill in flipflops - there were a few steep and rough spots. That said, once I got there, I was happy I did it. It's a nice little cove, the water was lovely. All...More

My favorite beach in the entire world, so relaxing, freeing, feels like home, if you want the excitement of the Sunday drum circle, you should go experience it, but a comment, Sunday drum circle is less nudity, more partying, if you want a wonderful peaceful...More

Quite a hike to get here but it was a unique experience. On Sunday nights they have drums and people dancing at sunset.

Little Beach is a wonderful nude beach! Great for swimming, snorkeling and sunning. Access can be challenging for some, but worth it.

I forgot to include… Bring your own wine or beer or soft drinks. Alcohol is permitted! And chairs that strap to your back so you have a place to sit. Truly a magical experience
