Where are the best beaches?


The closest beach from the house, and not so known, is Keawekapu beach. Mornings are best especially in the summer when trade winds pick up in the afternoon and the beach sand may sand blast you.

To get there from the house take Alaume St. to Ohina St turn right immediately turn left on Aukahi St. That dead ends into Kauhale St. turn left. That dead ends into Kilohana Dr. turn right. Just before it dead ends into Lower Kihei Rd. parking is on left. Walk across Lower Kihei Rd. and go right to public pathway to beach.


A great grass park and beautiful sand beach with lava rocks jutting out, one of our favorites, is Kamaole III state beach and park straight down Keonekai Rd. from house. This is where we like to play bocce ball on the grass park. Call Denise cell at 808 250-1208 if the bocce ball set is not at the house and we will drop it off for you.


Our favorite beach is Big Beach at Makena State Park which has got soft deep sand and the water is usually nice for swimming. Be careful if there is large surf. Even the small waves can sweep you off your feet and give you a good pounding due to the waves breaking in shallow water. One of the best views of any beach is a top the point to the North of big beach, all the way to the right as you face the water…if you don’t mind a little rock ascent to the point the view is tremendous, great for photos. Little beach is on the other side of this point and is swimming suit optional.


You will notice in the guest comment section everyone loves going to Po'olenalena Beach just down the way in Makena. Perfect for the entire family and easy access to your car.
