SPECIAL INTEREST: HASSEL OVER THE WORLDS FINEST NUDE BEACH 2002


Little Beach, Makena, Maui

BRIEF OUTLINE AND OVERVIEW OF RECENT EVENTS REGARDING LITTLE BEACH, MAKENA, MAUI

The recent "culture clash" or controversy over the clothing optional use of Little Beach traces its origins to the activities of provocateur* Charlie Maxwell. Maxwell who is half Hawaiian and half Haole claims he is particularly knowledgeable in Hawaiian Culture. Maxwell has clearly embraced fundamentalist Christian beliefs which are probably more closely linked to the Scottish side of his heritage. He rejects the pagan belief system of the Hawaiian side of his heritage and suggests that the old gods and beliefs be respected but not worshiped or venerated in any significant way. Maxwell has made a livelihood out of encouraging native Hawaiian's to fight for their rights and beliefs (as long as they are not contrary to a Christian perspective).

GENERAL CONDITIONS ON MAUI OF INTEREST TO TOURIST

Expect delays traveling about the Kihei side of Maui. From 3:30 to 5:30 these days the traffic becomes rather bogged down. Expect the normally five minute trip to take thirty minutes as congestion increases.

Conditions are expected to worsen over time. Apparently the new trend is to put up more traffic lights. With the lights concentrated within just a block or so of one another the prospects of a meaningful traffic flow are non existent.

Dr. Leisure talked with someone who did a traffic study about twenty five years ago. At the point on the road there was only about four cars went by in an hour.  Dr. Leisure did a survey and found that things hadn't really changed that much. Still only about four cars were going by in an hour! Albeit they were part of four hundred cars stacked up waiting to get through the rather congested streets of Kihei.

Visitors should be aware that it is standard policy to close a road completely if there is a traffic accident involving a fatality. This closure will likely be for more than a few hours. This can have particularly negative implications if the tourist is staying over on the Lahina side and needs to catch a flight out at the airport in the center of the island.

Books of particular interest to tourist or others interested in the culture of Maui.

In case you don't know how to find Little Beach just remember it is exactly one mile south of the Maui Prince Hotel on the same road as the Prince. Make a right turn (toward the ocean) and park in the parking lot. Proceed to Big Beach. Turn right and walk to the volcanic outcropping. Than proceed up the path. Turn left where it widens slightly and gets extremely steep to continue straight up the hill. Walk over the hill to the ocean and behold Little Beach.
