Makalawena beach by Kona airport, welcome to Hawaii

I went to the big island on 2007 but didn’t make it to this beach. Looks like a great place. Spectacular sunset by the way.

After Maui, I headed to the island of Hawaii aka Big Island. It was a real pleasure to see my first destination on the island – a beautiful secluded beach called Makalawena – from the airplane upon approach to Kona airport. It came highly recommended by two friends, and my guidebook (‘Hawaii, the Big Island Revealed‘) said that it was “the choicest beach on the island [to many who]… don’t mind walking to it”.

It looked very pretty from the air, with its clear turquoise water, white sand and coconut palm-trees… but I could also see a pretty long road and trails going through black lava field that lead to it! The book certainly had the point, but there was another promising note, which I have to cite here, as it’s quite funny:

By the way, because it’s so isolated, people sometimes travel light to this beach, omitting…

hang loose at Little Beach, Maui!

Active Naturists

When you’re in Hawaii, you’ll quickly learn the shaka sign, aka “hang loose”, and the perfect place to let it all hang loose is the Little Beach on the southern shore of Maui. The beach is quite small indeed, especially in comparison to the neighboring Big Beach, and it gets pretty crowded on weekends. Nevertheless, it’s easy to find a cozy, somewhat private spot, thanks to the trees and their massive roots that create sort of alcoves at the edge of the beach.

This place has a long hippie history, so the laid-back atmosphere is still prevalent there.

This beach is perfect for snorkeling and body-surfing, and when conditions are right, you could surf there too. I really wanted to surf there naked, just like native Hawaiians did, but unfortunately we didn’t have luck with the waves that day.

Garden of Eden trail in Iao valley, Maui

Active Naturists

naturist 0000 Iao valley, Maui, Hawaii, USA

How do you top an adventurous trail with four waterfalls that I described in my previous blogpost? Perhaps a trail filled with tropical fruit trees and breath-taking views will do! Just such a trail goes through Iao Valley in the western part of Maui.

This is actually a popular spot for mass tourism thanks to easy access to the view of Iao Needle rock formation, but hardly any visitors go on the trail behind the viewing platform. That’s where it gets only more interesting. Of course, I took off my clothes to enjoy the nice weather – combination of warm humid air and fresh breeze – and feel at home in the lush forest.

The view of the lush forested valley with dark vertical walls of mountains partially hidden in white clouds is exactly what you would imagine when asked to think of ‘magnificent beauty of nature’.

My Journey In Naturism, My Journey within Myself-Chapter Two

Another great post from Asian American Naturist!

Asian American Naturist

In last week’s chapter “The Awakening” I wrote about how I got interested in nude recreation and the first steps.  In this week’s chapter, I write about my further adventures in naturism.

Chapter Two: Self-Expression

My nude activities were relegated to an uncomfortable drive to Black’s Beach (with no car radio) when I had the time.  The drive there was long and the drive back was even longer.  Plus there was no amenities at Black’s Beach, i.e. restrooms, snack bars, or other conveniences.  If you had to take a wiz the ocean or the cliffs were your only bet.  Also I had an incident where a pervert hit on me (it happens to men too).  The problem with nude beaches is they are open to anyone and everyone.

Keep in mind also that I was still living at home at the time and my nude activities were on the down…

Naturist Beaches in Crete (Part 2)

Naturist Beaches in Crete (Part 2).

trail through a bamboo forest with 4 waterfalls, welcome to Maui!

Looks like a great place to visit Naturally.

Active Naturists

On my very short trip to Maui, I had to be very selective as to what to visit from the wide range of adventures and fun that this island could offer. A rough trail through a bamboo forest with four waterfalls sounded too good to miss out. It’s a short trail (just 1km) that goes along Na’ili’ili-haele stream, but it is rightfully located in the adventures section of “Maui Revealed: the Ultimate Guidebook“, where I first heard about it. I was lucky to find an adventurous couchsurfer in Maui, who knew the island well but not that trail and was up for checking it out. So, we headed there almost straight away after he picked me up from the airport.

There are a few narrow trails that start off Hana highway, and they immediately bring you into a dense bamboo forest.

My Journey In Naturism, My Journey within Myself

It is always great to hear stories of how do people get involved in naturism/nudism. I particularly liked this one.

Asian American Naturist

Chapter One: The Awakening

Why am I a naturist? How did I become a naturist?  When was the first time I was nude at a beach or a club?  It’s hard to answer these questions.  Much of it is lost in the fog of time, or was so natural that it’s like being asked when did I first notice the sky was blue.

As far as I can recall, I’ve always been fascinated by nudity.  As a child I thought it was strange that people wore clothing.  I didn’t like wearing shoes, preferring to walk home from school barefoot.  I could recall finding my dad’s stash of Playboy magazines, looking at the pictures of the nude women, I was neither titillated or repulsed.  The nudity of those naked women seemed normal, beautiful, the most beautiful thing I ever seen.

As a teen I was drawn to being nude. …

Great post about children and naturism. Children are born naturists but raised into the textile world

The Naked Truth.........

After months of intolerable wet weather the sun finally began to shine on us again for a few days this week and actually reached a peak of 17c on Saturday & Sunday. It was very strange and a case of “we’ll what shall we do now”. Unfortunately it was slightly cooler on the coast so the beach was out of the question, it was also a case of the countryside was too wet to go for a naked ramble, so instead we donned our wellies and went over to Arcadians and joined the others at the monthly work party. It wasn’t the first time I’d been there this year or even that week as I’d popped over in February to see the state of the waterlogged grounds.

Then earlier in the week I’d gone over to start refreshing the shower room with a lick of paint to cover up the scuff marks…
