  Red Sand Beach near Hana
by seamandrew

This picture shows a small segment of the Red Sand Beach near Hana (Kaihalulu in Hawaiian). This is a striking beach at least worth a look. The rainbow of colors in the lava cinders along the way, combined with the bright blue waters outside the cove, the jagged lava-rock inside the bay, the ironwood trees, the layered walls and the pristine beauty make this a memorable place to visit.

Our guidebook said it's popular (we didn't see anybody there) and that is is sometimes used by nudist (again, no body there!). Please note that as great as this beach can be, the swimming here looks terrible, snorkeling is not an option, and trails around the area are not great. Don't go with your expectations too high and you'll love it.

Directions: Just south of Ka'uiki Head.
