While this place is beautiful, please be cautious of the locals. We had problems with two sets of locals who apparently do not really want tourist on this beach. We remained nice and simply left but it certainly ended our road to Hana day on a bitter note.

I've been meaning to write an update on the bathroom condition at Hamoa Beach for some time since I rated it the worst bathroom a few years ago. Not sure if the Hana community or Travaasa Resort made the improvements but I'm happy to report that the public bathroom has a door w/lock and the water is back on at... More

After passing through Hana we just happen to see this beach and decided to pull over and stretch our legs. It turned out to be a fantastic beach, great views and fresh coconuts.

This was billed as the most beautiful beach in the Pacific. Is this true? I doubt it... But it is a nice smaller beach for an afternoon of sun and swimming.

His is a great, sandy beach with great swimming & a view of the big island. There are accommodations and free parking. Great stop after hiking the Pipiwai trail!

We loved this beach! There was no sudden drop into the water and so we walked quite a bit into the sea.. we were here for a long time, just basking in the waves. The beach also has bathing rooms and washrooms.

Okay, everyone has their idea of the perfect beach. Trust me, I've been to beaches from the Mexican Riviera to Bora Bora to Jamaica. I'm jaded when it comes to beaches, no doubt. And as far as Maui beaches go, well heck, I'm just back from a ten-day trip to introduce my husband to the beauty of the island, and... More

This is a gorgeous beach. If you are in Hana just for the day, then it is a long drive to get there. We found it to be worth it. The kids rode the waves and we were able to take in the scenery and enjoy the experience. We were there for two hours on our Hana trip all the... More

This was one of our favorite stops on our drive to (but past) Hana. This was a lovely beach with trees lining the sand creating some nice natural shade. The day we were there, it was nice swimming conditions.
