Pa’ako Beach is located on the South shore of Maui, and is just south of Big Beach (Makena Beach). It’s accessed via an access walkway that runs between two lava rock walls. It’s a very quiet little beach with beautiful scenery.
Although it’s known as “Secret Cove” Pa’ako Beach is a very popular spot for weddings. It features an abundant view of Maui’s clear, blue sky and sandy beach. There’s also a nice mix of landscape, with lava rocks and tropical plants (making it ideal for picture taking!).
The Secret Cove does not have any amenities and is fairly small, so we recommend it as a good spot for taking pictures and enjoying the scenery, but not so much as a “hang out” beach.
