Mostly known only to the locals until recent years, Po’olenalena Beach is a long sandy beach with spectacular views of the sunset, making it a favorite spot for wedding ceremonies and their photographers.

Meaning “yellow head”, the name Po’olenalena is referred to a yellow-streaked rock, sitting roadside on the golf course of Mauka, which has been a long time landmark.

Po’olenalena Beach is mostly popular with local families. It is usually less crowded during the week. When reading certain guidebooks, one may think that you will be all alone on a gorgeous secluded beach for the day, but one must come either early or late in the day and only during the week for that so-called “loneliness”. The main parking lot is big, but you will find on the weekends that you will have a tough time finding a spot to park.

Around the rocky outcroppings of the south end of Po’olenalena Beach, you will find the snorkeling to be excellent. During the south swells and when the seas are calmer, you will find that boogie boarding will be perfect for those younger kids and beginner boogie boarders. The sandy bottom where one enters into the waters is gently sloped and is ideal for swimming and playing. Please keep in mind though, during large swells or “kona” storms, the waters here can become unsteady and not safe with rip currents happening.

You will find the Makena Surf Condos sitting at the south end of Po’olenalena Beach, while on the north end there are several high-end houses located off of Makena Road. You will also see that the central part of the beach is still undeveloped and located directly off of the main parking area, making it a popular spot for families, fishermen, and the locals. A port-a-potty sits at the north parking lot with a shower at the south entry for different beach goers’ use.
