Puu Olai is a 360-foot weathered volcanic tuft that protrudes out to sea at the south end of Wailea. The dormant cinder cone separates Oneloa “Makena” Beach from Oneuli “Black Sand” Beach. At the base of the Puu Olai are lava formations and tidepools, dividing Makena Beach into Big Beach and Little Beach (an unofficial clothing optional beach). This hike begins on Big Beach and follows the long and wide crescent of sand to the base of the cinder cone. The trail explores the tidepools fronting Puu Olai, then climbs the volcanic slope to panoramic views across the ocean to the islands of Lanai, Molokini and Kahoolawe.
