    This is the most beautiful beach I have ever visited. The blue green water with golden sand makes the most photogenic view in here. The scenic beauty is beyond words to be described.
    This is a must visit beach when you are in Maui.
    I would have given more stars if possible.

    Big Beach is not to be missed. It's definitely one of the most awe-inspiring places on the entire island. The sheer power of the waves breaking right along the shore can often shake the beach, not unlike a small earthquake. Be mindful, however, that those strong waves are also responsible for catastrophic, life-changing injuries. Never, ever turn your back on the ocean.

    The sand is very soft here but the waves are very strong, not a good spot for swimming. However if you're here body surfing, you'll catch some great waves. There are life guards on duty. The current is so strong it will knock you off your feet if you're not careful. It's not too terribly crowded and the beach is large so theres plenty of space for everyone.

    A really beautiful beach that is not overcrowded. There is lots of space and beautiful sand and water to hang out in. The waves are frequently quite big here so it is not the best place for people who aren't great swimmers. There also are not any trees on the beach to provide shade, so bring lots of sunscreen with you.

    Beautiful Crystal clear water. Waves are powerful so please be careful. Sand is perfect and does get hot so wear flip flops. Enjoy this stunning beach.
