If you’re seeking a location that screams ‘Maui’ it’s Makena Cove. Also known as “Secret” cave or beach, that sweet little spot is tickled with lava rock and surrounded by gorgeous teal waters. Generally, doesn’t get too crowded and definitely not a great spot for a large ceremony. Just perfect for your small and intimate elopement. Will require a beach permit.
Palauea – White Rock – is one of the loveliest beaches on all of Maui. If hidden nooks and giant sea turtles are your vibe, we highly recommend this beach for your quiet elopement. The water is calm and clear, which makes for great swimming/snorkeling after you exchange your vows! Parking is on the side of road and there are no bathrooms here, so be warned! This spot does require a beach permit.
On the South side of Maui, this beach is known for its sunsets! We’re sure you’ve heard of the epic sunsets in Hawai’i and Paipu is no stranger to them. Though this beach can get a bit public, it’s still full of stunning views, hikes and swimming. This soft-sanded beach is a great spot to say ‘I do’. No matter the size of your guest list, this beach will require a beach permit.
If you don’t mind a few onlookers/applauders when you exchange your vows and you’re seeking the Rolls Royce of Maui beaches, Baldwin Beach is the spot for you! Equipped with all the amenities you need, Baldwin Beach is perfect to help you comfortable on your big day. This huge strip of beach is a great spot to exchange your vows and then spend the day lounging! Beach permit is required.
Located on the northern-west side of the island, Ironwoods is a diverse landscape of beach and greenery. A boardwalk aligns with the beach, making for a relaxing and stunning setting. We love our intimate ceremonies at Ironwoods!
Travel fees do apply.
