Kaihalulu Red Sand Beach
Located on the far side
of Ka'uiki Hill south of
Hana Bay is Kaihalulu or
Red Sand Beach. The
sand is red-black in color
from the crumbling
cindercone hill.
Swimming is poor except
when the ocean is very
calm.    
This beach is very
isolated and nude
sunbathers
sometimes visit the
area.
Take careful note of the sign.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
DIRECTIONS:
Take Uakea off Highway
360 (Hana Highway)
toward Hana Bay. Pass the
bay and continue to the
end of the road. Park on
Uakea near Hauoli. Just
before the Sea Ranch
Cottages there is a trail on
the right leading to the
beach.
