Kaihalulu “Red Sand” Beach

Kaihalulu “Red Sand” Beach Professional Review and Guide

"Kaihalulu “Red Sand” Beach is a hidden gem in the town of Hana on the isolated south side of Kauiki Head. The secluded, clothing-optional beach is set in a small pocket cove enclosed by towering volcanic cliffs.

The red sand originates from the eroded volcanic cinders spilling off the cliffs. The exotic looking beach is often protected from the strong ocean currents by a large, jagged lava rock barrier that forms a natural sea wall. The only access to the beach is from a narrow, eroded cliff-hugging trail above the ocean."

The hike is no way 1 mile, for anyone who may wonder. It is a slippery hike and anyone not sure footed needs to excercise extreme caution. But the beach is wonderfully secluded and you won't be disappointed when you get here. It's partially protected from the ocean by a natural rock barrier. And for anyone worried about nudity problems, I've been here quite a few times and have never seen anyone without clothes on.

Hiking Alert - this beach is a clothing optional beach. Do not be alarmed when you go around the bend. Nice spot depending on who is sunbathing!
