Chang's Beach (view panorama) is a popular bodyboarding beach, especially among locals who come here during times of high surf. When the ocean is calm, snorkeling is good here as well. The small cove has a marvelous offshore reef and you'll be amazed how many fish you can observe here.
The name Chang's Beach doesn't exactly sound Hawaiian. The beach was named after the Chang family, who had farmed the land for a long time on a part of this beach. The house of Eddie Chang still stands.
Chang's Beach is located in Makena on Maui's south shore, just south of Po'olenalena Beach. There are no lifeguards or facilities.
