This first beach is incredible and my kids' favorite. Ask them, after this summer, which beach they prefer. They will all scream that they want to go to White Rock. It's long, and not as crowded, so my kids found a nice section of the beach all to themselves. The funny thing about White Rock is the private property/no trespassing signs posted all among the trees. But remember the story I told you in the beginning of our tour. No one can buy themselves a beach on Maui, so there will always be a beach access available. You just have to find it. It winds through the many wild Kiawe trees that front this beach. So many beautiful homes are going up in this area. I hope it does not change the access to this beach too much. It might though. Perhaps one day, they will have made it so hard to get to White Rock that it will make it prohibitive. I hope this never happens, but one can never know in this greedy little world we live in.
For now we can still enjoy Palauea Beach (or White Rock) to our hearts' content. Here's how you get there. Remember Polo Beach? Do you remember how to get there? Okay, instead of turning into the parking lot for Polo Beach, continue on down to the end of the lane, turn left at the very end, drive just a slight bit down that road until you see a slew of cars parked all along what looks like the middle of no where. You've found White Rock. Park your car where you can find a place. Locate the beach access through the trees, walk just a bit through those trees and out onto one of the most incredible beaches.
