MAKENA BEACH – CHANG’S BEACH
Description of Chang’s Beach: Chang’s Beach is a small sandy beach located in Makena. It is backdropped by a number of luxury homes and condo units. This beach is also known as Ulupikanui. Ulupikanui is a Hawaiian word meaning large fig tree. This refers to a large fig tree that existed on the cliff but has since been developed. The beach’s current name is from the Chang Family.
