Hana Beaches

hana map

Hana Beaches are some of the more picturesque beaches in Hawaii. Visitors who drive the Road to Hana might stop and view a couple of them, but they really don’t layout and relax on them. This is the rough windward side of the island, and the ocean can get very dangerous at times. Use extreme caution around all beaches in Hawaii, particularly those along this Hana Coast. There are no lifeguards, and few bystanders if you need assistance.


Detailed information about Hana and the drive at Hana CD Guide.


Be careful in and around the ocean if you are unsure of what you are doing. The ocean can be very dangerous. When in doubt, don't!

Pa’iloa Bay at Waianapanapa State Park is a black sand beach, and can get dangerous if the surf and ocean are rough. The park has all facilities, and no lifeguard.

Hana Bay would be your best place to put a foot in the water if it isn’t rough, which it rarely is because it is in an enclosed bay. The sand looks brown, but that’s the color of the rock around the bay that the sand comes from. All facilities.

Koki Beach in Hamoa is best to view and not swim at. If you need assistance, there is no one around. Ocean can get rough. No facilities.

Hamoa Bay is the most picturesque bay on this side of the island. The beach is named Mokae Cove, and it is used by the guests of the Travaasa Hana, formerly the Hotel Hana Maui. All facilities are for the guests, but the beach, like all beaches in Hawaii, is open to the public.
