This was our first from road to Hana and what a treat it was! The beach looked amazing and there were a lot of surfers. They also had food trucks with fresh fruit!

We stopped here to watch some surfers and had a great time. It felt like a locals beach. Swimming isn't that great because of the rocks in the surf. We saw a group of 20-30 turtles at the West end of the beach which was a great way to end our day.

If you want to enjoy a "FREE" Maui experience, then Ho'okipa Beach is a must stop. Fewer things are more fascinating than watching the pros handle their kite boards, wind boards or traditional surf boards.

There is a good viewing point on the top of the hill to watch everyone. I would think it takes a lot of stamina to play in these waves. There was also a lot of turtles nesting on the beach that was nice to see.

Located on the Hana Hwy just after Mama's Fish Restaurant, watch for the sign. It's one way in on the left - blink and you'll miss it. Once you have entered the beach park, park as soon as you see a spot otherwise you will go through the one way road and you'll have to exit. There is a fruit... More

Kite surfers and surfers of all kinds were taking advantage of the perfect conditions while sea turtles gave something else to look at. Many vendors were offering crafts and trinkets in the parking zone.

This was our first "stop" on our road to Hana. There is a nice beach park with parking and views of the beach. A great place to stop and watch surfers hit some large waves. Beautiful spot for pictures and beautiful scenery. There were some stands selling locally made jewelry and fresh coconuts as well.

Loved watching the surfers, kite surfers and sail boarders having a blast! We just parked and watched from the car in two different occasions!
