Maui Pictures - Hana Beach
Maui Pictures - Hana Beach - At the south end of Hana Bay is Hana Beach Park. This park is a great place to hang out, have a barbeque, or just play on the beach. It is a beautiful picturesque bay nuzzled under the foothills of eastern Haleakala. It serves up some of the most memorable ocean and mountain views. There are a few pavilions with picnic tables and BBQs, the pavilions are even supplied with electric outlets.
There are fresh water showers and plenty of shade for those seeking shelter from too much Maui Sun, or rain. Hana Beach is right in front of the pavilions on the south end of the park. The water seems to be a little murky on the inside but that is due to the color of the sand. It is sort of a brownish black, probably because of the added presence of lava rock in the environment.
