What to Expect
Makena Road, South Maui
Four beaches along Makena Road surround this beautiful south shore bay and are often referred to as Makena Beach but may actually be Maluaka Bay and Beach, Big Beach, and Po'olenalena Beach. Makena Landing Beach Park is the first beach located along Makena Road. The beach was hit by a storm in 1999 and the runoff caused unusually cloudy water conditions which killed the coral reef in this area.
