Kaihalulu bay or more commonly known as Red Sand Beach is located in the Hana district of Maui. The bay gets its name, kai halulu which means “roaring sea” in the Hawaiian language.
Getting to this beach is not easy for multiple reasons. Number one, locals do not want tourists to visit this beach. Number two, it is dangerous as part of the trail was lost to a landslide and has become more dangerous than it once was. This is not a safe hike for anyone who does not have experience hiking along cliff edges. Number three, it requires you to cross private property to get to this beach.
Red Sand Beach is partially shielded from the rough open ocean by an offshore reef. The result is a natural sea wall that protects the bay from large waves. Kaihalulu is one of the few red sand beaches in the world.
