Kaihalulu Beach is sometimes referred to as Red Sand Beach because of the distinctive red hue of the sand along the coast. Its location at the end of a dangerous trail makes it challenging to find. A very narrow trail which is steep, slick, and dangerous leads from Uakea Road to a grassy area. You will only want to attempt this with the utmost of care and if you are an experienced hiker as many injuries occur here yearly. It has also been noted that part of the trail was eroded due to a landslide, so you will need to exercise great caution and proceed slowly as you travel to the beach.
Found right in the middle of the town of Hana, Kaihalulu Beach is known as one of Maui's hidden treasures. The beach itself is shaped like a crescent. It has been molded into a cinder cone known as Ka'uiki Head. You will also see red lava rocks, cliffs, and of course, red sand.
The most pawpular activities at Kaihalulu Beach include snorkeling, wading, and walking along the water's edge. You and your pooch can take the plunge and go for a swim here, but you will need to be careful that the currents are not overly strong that day. The views from the shore of the surrounding area are pawsitively furrific!
You will need to bring along cleanup bags and drinking water to this pawrific bayside retreat. You will also want to note that due to its remote, secluded location, Kaihalulu Beach is a favorite spot of nudists and other eccentric figures, but is not a nude beach. Though there is not a lot of pawrking available on site, you can find a pawtastic spot at the nearby Hana Ballpark.
For a day of fun at one of Maui's most beloved and well-hidden treasures, plan a trip to Kaihalulu Beach today. You'll have a doggone amazing time!
