One of the best beach on Maui. Way: At the end of the school, pass the lawn at the yellow gate. At the other side you will find a little track which leads to the beach (see pictures 5 & 6).

It is difficult to park near the beach, a narrow one way road. Then you have to traipse through a field, and follow the path down to the beach. It is a scary and somewhat dangerous path, and I would not recommend it if you...More

A little difficult to find, The trailhead to beach is through some bushes, at the edge of a small field next to a school. We were able to make the hike with a six-year old in tow. Well worth the hike!

This red sand beach is situated in a cove surrounded by rock cliffs, picturesque with sand soft to the touch and clear water. There is a reef barrier protecting the cove from ocean waves, making the water gentle enough for the little ones. Potentially very...More

The Shaka app we were using gave us great parking instructions which was so helpful. If you are not using an app to guide you, you'll find that you are going through a small residential neighborhood and will come across a green community center on...More

We made this our main destination after enduring the road to Hana. I would say it was the highlight of the trip. It was a really unique beach and made for some pretty pictures. The only frustrating part was it took us about 5 hours...More

If you can find Parking, go for it. To reach, some trekking required along narrow cliffs. Worth a visit.

There is only the one trail. I'm not sure what your ability is, so I can't say for sure how difficult itwould be for you. Its hard packed dirt, but is a little narrow. The main problem I would say is there are some roots... More
