‘Unofficial Clothing-Optional’ Beaches in Hawaii
WARNING: We are going to preface this by advising that Exotic Estates does not officially recommend nude sunbathing on these beaches. However, we looked around, and, if you must, the beaches below are known unofficially as beaches where nudity is more or less tolerated. Strip at your own risk!
Here is the list of Top 5 Nude Beaches in Hawaii
1. Little Beach—Maui
Little Beach, Maui is yet another beach with many names. Whether you want to call it Little Beach, Little Makena Beach or Onouli Beach is completely up to you! It’s a great place to hang out in the warm Maui sun, but only if you’re free-spirited enough to accept the fact that it’s widely considered to be a clothing-optional beach.
If you’re willing to make the trip, you’ll be rewarded with an ocean that is generally much more suitable for swimming and boogie boarding compared to Big Beach.
2. Secret Beach (Kauapea)—Kauai
This beach is known as Kauapea, but due to the amount of seclusion in the region, its magnificent landscape, and its secret location, many residents refer to it as “Secret Beach.” On the north side of Kauai, Kauapea Beach is nestled between Kalihiwai Bay and Kilauea Point. To access the beach, you must follow an unmarked track down the hill to the 3,000-foot-long sandy beach. Further down the beach is the ‘unofficial clothing-optional’ area.
3. Kahena Beach—Big Island
Head to the beautiful black sand beach, also known as “Dolphin Beach”, located on the east coast of the Big Island. This ‘unofficial clothing-optional’ beach spot is tucked in between the trees and the coastline, offering the privacy to enjoy a naturist afternoon!
4. Kahuku Beach—Oahu
Kahuku Beach, one of Oahu’s ‘unofficial clothing-optional’ beaches, is tucked along Route 83 and the island’s northeast coastal line. While the throngs congregate at Polo Beach, you can take a detour to Kahuku Beach, which is less well-known.
5. Donkey Beach, Kauai
Donkey Beach on Kauai’s east shore was once regarded as one of the top nudist or clothing-optional beaches in the world. Even back then, the beach wasn’t ideal for swimming, but it was popular with sunbathers seeking a more natural experience. This beach’s remote position makes it an ideal destination for nudists. It needs a trek across a sugarcane field to get there. Previously, the proprietors allowed visitors to cut through the field to get to the shore.
Overall, it’s not easy to sunbathe in the nude in Hawaii, but it’s certainly possible. It depends on how determined you are to find the right beaches!
