    Black. Sand. Yes people, that is sand that is BLACK!

    With its jet-black shore, lapis lazuli waters and thick, jungle-like foliage, Honokalani Beach is a photographer’s dream. Lie lazily on the “sand”—actually made up of of tiny lava pebbles. Read more

    With the black sand beach, you'll definitely want to come here. But the cave will disappoint unless you're up for going deep in (bring a flashlight!).

    Visit the black sand beach, adjacent lava tube & swimming cave (behind parking lot). Hike on the trail to the north of the beach for great views & crashing waves.

    Take a swim and hide in the cave. Be sure to take a flash light with you.

    Great diversion from your drive on the road to Hana. Check out the black sand beaches and caves. Several lava tubes can be seen here too. Restrooms and water fountains are available.

    Wai'anapanapa State Park has many points of interest such as a seabird colony, the legendary cave of Princess Popo'alaea, a heiau (religious temple), and a small black sand beach.

    Take a refreshing swim in the cave!

    A definite must-see if you're on Maui. Best hike ever if you start at the airport and hike all the way to the black sand beach. You can even keep going and make it past Hana Bay! Best views!

    This is a pretty treacherous spot to swim at. Best to enjoy the beach and caves instead. Also, take a stroll to the freshwater caves and learn of the legend of princess Popoalaea. Read more

    This is a great place for the black sand beach, the blow holes, the caves, the graves and more. Good spot for a picnic too.
