o Hawaii - Big Island and Mauai Update. March 2007. Back from a week on Big Island and a week on Maui. Thought I'd offer some updates from my trip. Big Island. 1. Kehena works as predicted. Very low profile - do what you want. Seemed to me that the beach has lost a lot of sand since I was there in 2001. Still, easy to climb down to, and no hassles to do as you wish. Kind of like a laid back Little Beach. 2. Beach 67 (north end of Poaku - 3o min from Kona) was great. Easy to find (althought the telephone pole is kind of tucked away from the road toward the beach). Small and nothing to rave about from a sandy, swimmy beach, but easy to get to, and not crowded on Tuesday late morning. I went top down, guy with me was bare, and there were 4-6 older nude guys and 4-6 clothed couples there. No one interacted much - most kept to their own space. 3. Makalewena Beach. Ouch - what a drive and what a walk to get to this place. Drive from highway takes about 20 minutes to go 1.5 miles. Almost need 4wd, but everything seems to make it. Take a rental. Park, then walk . . . - all lava, about 20-50 feet from ocean - takes about 10 minutes to walk to the park beach (mahai ??? beach), then another 30 minutes over tough lava trail to get to Makalewena. Worst part - - - once there, we found about 20 people - all clothed - some with kids. Another 10 or so had come from the northern road (the 4wd road), but they seemed all textile types too. So - bikini only there. Seemed pretty busy to be C.O., although it was a weekend day. 4. Last beach area south of A-Bay Beach (supposedly near old pineapple farm). Takes about 20 minutes to walk south from A-Bay along the beach. Sunday late afternoon - 4-6 people there - none were naked or topless. Kept mine on. Weekend might have been the problem here too. Maui Little Beach same as ever. About one third each clothed, topless, and nude. 80% of nudes were buff guys, 10% in-shape girls, the other 10% were a variety. Maybe 2-3 kids under 12. Kind of crowded in mid-afternoon. Love it there! Red Sand Beach in Hana - bummer. Got there around 2 pm on a rather cloudy day, found about 15 teenage kids, all with suits. Beautiful spot - would like to claim it early next time. I do hear that it is frequently nude, but was not that day. In Hana, you have to fight the weather and the timing to be first, so it's not a slam dunk. Had some hopes re. a few other beaches, but none were even topless. Same with Big Island where we found too many people and suits. So - - - a tan line kind of trip for the most part (since it was not sunny at Kehena Black Sand Beach). But other than that, you gotta admit, it's one great island. We started in Hilo, went all the way down around South Point, then spent 4-5 days in Kona, included trips all the way up north, through the saddle road, up over the high spots, etc., etc. Great island. Probably would not spend a whole week on Maui as we did, if I have it to do again. Maybe 4 days Maui, 10 (or more) Big Island. We'll be back. This report is brought to you by Allie4. S/he can be found on the message board under that alias.

o Beaches of Kauai, Hawaii. December 2008.


Larsen's Beach - go beyond the end of the photo for nudity.

My wife and I spent Christmas vacation, 2008, on the island of Kauai. This is my report on the beaches we visited. We were able to spend time at the following beaches: Secret, Larsen's, Aliomanu, and Kekaha Beach Park. We were able to be nude at Larsen's and Aliomanu.


Larsen's Beach as seen from the trail leading down to it. Take walking sticks.

We only visited Secret Beach once. The hike down was treacherous due to the fact that the island had received a lot of rain prior to our visit and the path was very muddy. When we did make it to the beach and walked all the way down to the right, as advised, we found only a few other groups, all in bathing suits. Since we had more rain during our visit, we did not return. Although rather deserted, Kekaha Beach Park, on the west shore just south of Barking Sands, was not conducive to nudity due to the four-wheel drive vehicles cruising up and down the sands. Speaking of Barking Sands, it was not accessible due to heightened security and the close proximity of the missile base.


North end of Kekaha Beach Park. No nudity here.

Polihale State Park had been recommended to us as a good beach for nudity due to its sheer size, but it was closed due to the extremely muddy conditions of the access road. In fact the gate was locked!

Aliomanu Beach was wonderful in spite of the fact that there is a house overlooking the beach. We were able to be nude without hassle and never saw any activity at the house. If you go all the way to the left (north) it is possible to be out of view of the house. There were a few suited snorkelers but they did not bother us. Our favorite nude beach was Larsen's. Again, we were virtually alone most of the time but one day there were several other nude couples on the beach as well. Go all the way to the end of the path and continue to the left (north) on the beach for the best spots for nudity. We plan to visit Larsen's again next Christmas.


Sign at trailhead to Larsen's - to be taken seriously!

Be advised that the weather can be a major factor for beach goers during December. We only had four or five days when it was even possible to be on a beach. Patience and a flexible schedule help out. Also, we stayed in Kapaa which is centrally located so if it was raining on the north shore, we went to the west. Of course, the fact that Polihale State Park was closed did not help. Overall we had a wonderful time and plan to return next year. We will probably give Secret Beach and Polihale another chance if the mud is not too deep and definitely return to Larsen's. Thanks PB for the report.
