The natural beauty of Red Sand Beach in Hana Maui

By
Real Estate Agent with Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers HRE# 58089 - RS

Red Sand Beach is one of the unique highlights in Hana Maui, and worth a visit if you are brave enough to walk the narrow trail.  You can find the trail head near the end of Uakea Road in town. 

narrow trail going to Red Sand Beach in Hana Maui

Follow that trail at your own risk and be careful when navigating the steep parts that tower above the ocean.  Just go slowly and don't bring too many things with you.

First glimpse of Red Sand Beach

Once you arrive at this beach you will appreciate how lovely it is.  The sand really is red due to the broken down volcanic rock, and it will even be hot to the touch. Keep your shoes on until you get in the water.  Swimming here is fun in the little protected cove.  If you're adventurous, swim out beyond the rocks and do some snorkeling.  You'll see lots of brightly colored tropical fish and you might encounter a sea turtle... but don't touch!

The trail descending to Red Sand Beach in Hana

That's part of the narrow trail that you have to walk down to get onto the red sand.  Some people get a little nervous if they are afraid of heights.  In that case, just go back to another beach in Hana as there are many more to choose from.

It's nice to take your time when visiting Hana and really enjoy the drive and the views along the way.  If you're staying in Hana while on vacation, there's not a lot of commercial activity and shopping to do, so the beaches and nature are of primary importance.  Nearby you'll find the famous Seven Pools or Oheo Gulch, which is part of Haleakala National Park.  Please be respectful of people who live in Hana and the surrounding areas, and drive carefully and pull over if needed.

Hello Georgie ...

Amazing photographs and I remember you telling me that Maui has red sand beaches, white sand beaches and black sand beaches. 

Some day I would love to visit Maui for a long period of time

Endre Barath, Jr.  It's very striking... and you should see the black sand!

Patricia Kennedy It can be scary alright.. just this weekend a car went off the road and crashed onto the rocks below and the occupants had to be helicoptered out.  You have to pay attention!
