This is my second post of 4 on my recent family trip to Maui.
This was a total beach day. We woke up and had a little breakfast, my dad took off for his bike ride to Makena and we met him there for fish tacos and a little wave action.
Makena (big beach) is located near Wailea on the complete otherside of the island from Napili (where we were staying). Meaning it is overlooked by Haleakala instead of the West Maui Mountains.
Makena, in my opinion, is one of the best beaches on the island.
- First of all, it is massive.
- Second of all, they have an awesome little taco truck (Jawz) right at the entrance to the beach. And the ono tacos are to die for!
- Third, the view is amazing. One of the most interesting views on the island! You can see Molokini, Lana’i, and Kaho’olawe along with a volcano, lava flows, and a crater.
- And finally, it almost always has huge waves to play in. You do have to be a little careful playing in these waves, they can really hurt you!
