Makena Beach, Maui
Described as “one of Maui’s signature beaches” by GoHawaii.com, Makena Beach State Park is like Turkey’s Blue Lagoon — a completely undeveloped stretch of coast, meaning it belongs entirely to nature. The beach provides a less crowded alternative to larger beaches on the island and is divided into two sections, Big Beach and Little Beach, clearing landing it on our list of the most beautiful beaches in the world for 2021.
The shy or those with children should take note, however: Little Beach often operates under a “clothing optional” statute. Sunday’s at Little Beach are also known for the lively drum circles and performers as locals and visitors alike come to watch the magical sunsets.
