Hey everyone! I just got back from looking at several houses in Hawaii. They were so beautiful and I am now considering a big move to Oahu, Hawaii. I loved Hawaii and instead of having just a vacation house, I’m looking into maybe moving there. While that is a decision I will have to make with my life partner, I decided I would share a few of my favorite beaches I visited. So whether you’re in the market to buy or just going to visit I wanted to share the most lovely beaches we saw!
Maui has many pristine, long stretch of beaches that are suitable for family and friends. The outdoor fun doesn’t stop with the swimming and sunbathing but the beaches provide an avenue to do picnic, beach volleyball, sand jogging, night life and all other activities. However, for other activities that are considered a little extreme for family oriented beaches, there is a separate list for them. We will only talk about traditional sandy beaches in this article.
Big Beach has a mile stretch of beach with sands that are a perfect combination of orange and white. It is situated at the southern part of the island and a perfect setting to get mesmerized by the cliffy dramatic landscape and turquoise-colored water. There are three entrances to the beach. The first one has the largest parking area and is close to the Little Beach. The second entrance has a paved lot while the third has dirt parking only. The third entrance leads to a beach that is smaller than the first two entrances.
Big Beach is ideal for skimboarding, body surfing and body boarding. However, large swell can develop depending on the time of the day so caution is advised for children and inexperienced swimmers. This is not a good place to do snorkelling either.
Little Beach is popular for nudists. The waves are ideal for bodysurfing and surfing. Depending on the time of the day and what day it is, you can see nudist soaking up the sun. At Sundays, the beach can be crowded for its size. The beach is beautiful and clean. You can enjoy dipping on the beach, watching the sunset while enjoying the beat of large drums. Once it turns dark, you can join others, nude or clothed, dance in the circle with fire. Fire dancers will keep you entertained until the beach closed at 8-9 pm for safety reasons.
This beach is empty on most part of the year so this is perfect for those who just want to do sun bathing, strolling, reading or just any lazy activity. You can walk for miles without anybody interrupting you but will be enthralled with some incredible views along the way. If you are lucky enough, you can be treated for whale watching depending on the season.
