The hike back can be challenging for young children or others with challenges. The beach is cool to experience. Lava rocks break the impact of the waves so it’s fine to swim in. We enjoyed our time here.

Very nice. Wear some good shoes as the dirt trail there is a bit loose on some of the downslopes. It's hard to reach for anyone not in the greatest shape.

You should have decent shoes on, this place is steep and narrow but worth it! You will pull down what looks like a one way road... with a gate at the end and big blue home / building to your left. You’ll think you can’t...More

The trail to get to the beach is not the easiest however well worth it. The beach is amazing and the water is very clear.

This red pebble beach is the vestige of a lava crater than opens to the ocean on one side. The blue water, red "sand, black lava rocks" and red cliffs make for an incredible sight. The "sand" is actually small red lava rocks which are...More

Red sand beaches located behind the Hana school at the end of Hana Road which is a dead-end. I recommend you get an audio guided CD for your vehicle.
