Big Beach aka Makena State Park is...well, big! It's my favorite beach on Maui. The sand is perfect to walk on, soft and exfoliating at the same time. The water, a beautiful turquoise fading into dark blue as it gains depth. The waves a nice mix of not too large (at least at the times I've been there!), but dramatic enough to be fun. We were lucky enough to be there during a storm, in the distance, but never on top of us. I captured my son running from the waves, inside this beauty, inside this beautiful moment.
