Mākena State Park comprises 165 acres in Makena, south of Wailea on the island of Maui, Hawaii. It contains three separate beaches and a dormant volcanic cinder cone.
Big Beach, also known as "Oneloa Beach" and "Mākena Beach", is a popular spot for sunbathing and bodyboarding by both tourists and locals. Big Beach is 1.5 miles long and more than 100 feet wide. The shore is fairly protected from wind. The "Makena cloud" that stretches from the top of Haleakalā to Kahoʻolawe is often overhead, cooling the sand.
Little Beach, also known as "Puʻu Ōlaʻi Beach" is a small beach just North of Big Beach separated by a steep lava outcropping and a 5-minute hike. On Sunday afternoons/evenings Little Beach is host to celebratory drumming and fire dancing.
