Very cool and very small hidden beach.

Pa'ako Beach, or Secret Cove or Paako Cove or even Makena Cove as it's called, is a neat hidden beach found in the Makena area of south Maui. If you're headed to La Perouse Bay then you'll pass by this beach and probably not even know it was there.

To get to Pa'ako Beach, follow our map and then park along the street when you get close. Along the rock fence / wall on the ocean side of the street will be a blue beach access sign that will take you to this hidden beach.

Secret Cover is a hugely popular place for weddings and it's very tiny so it fills up fast. Make a stop here in the morning and relax with excellent views of Kaho'olawe Island and Molokini Crater.

It's a beautiful little beach and the small cove next to it is just as neat. Just around the corner to the north will be Big Beach (Oneloa/Makena Beach) at Makena State Park but you can't easily walk from one beach to the other because of all of the rocks you'd have to climb over.
