Paako Beach is also known as Secret Cove. It's named after Pa'ako, meaning point, which is directly on the beach's north side. It's located on Maui's south shore near Makena Beach. It isn't really a secret, but a very popular spot for weddings and photography. You can reach this beach by heading south from Wailea on Wailea Alanui Drive. The road name will change to Makena Road. Paako Beach is just a little past the sign for Big Beach.
