Makena Beach has two parts. We're on top of the cliff/hill separating Big  Makena from Little Beach.

Our first night on Maui we went to Big Makena just before sunset so Greg and Guy could get in the ocean right away. We stayed until it was almost too dark to find our way back to the car.

After the first night, we always went to Little Beach, which is the clothing optional part. It also has better snorkeling.

Here is Jack on Little Beach.  Look closely -- he is naked.

This picture was taken at the end a day of body surfing. Otherwise we were naked all the time.

The body surfing was much better on the Little Beach.

We would spend hours in the water.

Years ago, back in the mid-1970s, I was known as Surf King by my friends in Pacific Palisades, California.

Back then I would spend all weekend body surfing.  This beach was almost as good as far as the waves go.  Better when you add the water temperature and remove the clothes.

It didn't take but a few good waves for me to get back in form. I would ride many good waves all the way in to the beach. I would get tired and go rest on the towel, but only for about 3 minutes.  Everyone knows that the good sets of waves come in while you are out of the water.

Jack has caught a big one.

I'm going for it; Greg is waiting for a better one.

We went to the little beach 4 days (at least for a couple of hours) of our 7 days on Maui.
LB140.JPG
Our last full day on Maui, we snorkeled at the little beach for the first time.
LB150.JPG
We were there early in the morning and it was fantastic.  But we didn't take the cameras.  Today, the day we fly out, the water wasn't as clear, but still better than we had earlier on this vacation.

In the end, you need ideal conditions and a professional camera to get good shots. But it is still a lot of fun.
LB170.JPG
Jack can diver deeper than I can.
LB180.JPG
For some reason, I seem to float back up so quickly.
LB190.JPG
If I go much deeper than 15 feet, my ears hurt and I don't like it. So my buoyancy doesn't bother me too much.

Jack walking out of the water for the last time on this trip. We will go back.
