  • Hamoa has fine, speckled sand and a very gently sloping beach. It has more of a local vibe. It is not anywhere near as crowded as other Maui beaches closer to tourist destinations. On the day we visit...  more »
  • It is a beach on the road to the South of Hana, you arrive in vehicle, or bicycle, do not there is parking, you park on the road that runs along the beach, found just a place in a mini space that would be on the road where it reached about 8 cars. If you arrive late you will be parked a little withdrawn. The beach is sandy black (not my taste), quiet, and you can swim. In normal that the sky is cloudy, so I bathed me little because he preferred a more warm water. It has waves, not dangerous.

  • There are many beaches in the state of Hawaii, but this one has everything from the black sand to the flora. It is a bit underwhelming, but it's got all of Hawaii's best beach features in one spot.  more »

  • Great Beach if you're staying at the travaasa their guy shows up between 9 and 9:30 he's supposed to be there at 9 but he's generally late and the umbrella is very useful since it gets quite hot. It's hard to find it first visit me when you pass the bus stop on the way down to drive that's your Beach if you keep going you'll end up on another flatter and far less spectacular beach.
  • Awesome beach for some wave action. Nice Sandy bottom. Waves are erratic and break quickly, but a fun time nonetheless. There's a building with facilities, but it's for a private beach club so plan on going back to the hotel salty . . . and jumping straight into the pool! Highly recommended if you are interested in some wave action with a sandy bottom instead of rocks.
  • Great beach, we were here to watch the sunrise but clouds got in our way. There is parking along the street which worked out ok with a light walk. If you get there in the morning you can seen hundreds of tiny crabs digging burrows. I stood still over one of the crab homes and he came out and threw sand on my foot.
  • A great place to stop and enjoy the beach. Parking is limited but no worries keep driving for more beaches up the road. It's fun to watch the surfers here. The waves get huge. Watch your things. You may think you have them at a safe distance and then a big wave gets close.
  • Outstanding! Sand is soft and thick. Waves are killer and the water is gorgeous. One of the best beaches I've been on! Make sure to stop and look out from the bus stop at the top of the stairs - you can see sea turtles swimming! If you're a Travaasa guest, they have bathrooms, water, towels, chairs, and umbrellas available - just ask!
