Official named Makena Beach, this lovely sandy beach is almost 2/3 of a mile long and over 100 yards wide. It is often referred to as THE beach on Maui. Often crowded on weekends, there is a second section of the beach connected by a path on the right. This smaller beach area is referred to as "Little Beach". The division between Big Beach and Little Beach was caused by a lava flow and earthquake in 1790. The hill dividing the beaches is called Pu'u Ola'i or Earthquake Hill.
