Serenity on Maui’s Big Beach

The sound of the waves crashing in a primordial rhythm as old as time, is as comforting as the beat of your mother’s heart, from the safety of her womb. Add golden sands, a deserted beach and a lingering sunset, and you’ve got an award-winning recipe for utter serenity.

We’ve sat on a lot of beaches, in a lot of countries since our trip to Hawaii, but the timelessness and tranquility I experienced on Maui’s Big Beach that evening, was a rare and precious thing indeed.

Have you ever felt a sense of total tranquility and timelessness? Where was your most serene moment?

    • I believe that it’s one of the most soothing sounds on earth. ๐Ÿ™‚ I always feel such peace by next to the ocean.

  2. Beautiful! My most tranquil moment was very similar. I was staying on an island in Cambodia, and went for a solo walk across the island to get to a beach I’d heard was stunning, and less busy. It was the most stunning contrast of pure white sand and turquoise water I’d ever seen, and there was no one around to share it with. I floated in the warm, pristine waters and never wanted to leave. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It was wonderful, wasn’t it? Maui was our favourite Hawaiian island of the ones we visited, but didn’t make it to Kauai. Have you been?

      February 1, 2015
      • No we have only been to Maui. I think I need to live to 150 to see everywhere I’d like. ๐Ÿ™‚
