Big Beach Maui Sunset

Big Beach Sunset, Maui

The sun pokes holes in the clouds above creating gold shafts of light, illuminating the shoreline and wet sand of Big Beach on Maui’s southeastern coast.

Big Beach is found in Makena State Park, just south of famous resort town Wailea, Maui. It is called Big Beach simply because it is wide and nearly a mile long. The shoreline here receives a pounding from the ocean channel it shares with Hawaii island. This pounding has created a steeper shoreline used by experienced locals for amazing skimboarding acrobatics.

From Big Beach, the sun sets each evening behind prominent cinder cone Pu‘u Ola‘i with Molokini Islet visible just a few miles off shore.
