Hana’s Hamoa Beach – Ancient Sailing Port by Douglas Bowser As a professional photographer living on Maui for the last 16 years, I feel so lucky to have seen so many different areas of this amazing island. Many of these regions like Hamoa Beach, are always making some top 5 list, and are of course beautiful. But Hamoa is so small compared to many Maui beaches, and unlike the larger and more well known ones located on the south and west sides of the island, Hamoa is small and hard to find. Hamoa has a small pavilion and a few chairs put out by Hotel Hana and access is a steep path coming down from a narrow road with little parking. I had little appreciation for it until I went out on a Hana tour and learned the stories of this area from a local born tour driver. (Valley Isle Excursions toll free: 1-877-871-5224) […]

We loved the full experience it allowed us to have by allowing us to choose the journey best suited for us. […]

Don't worry! You can still do the road to Hana, but you can't go all the way around for 4-5 weeks (Maui time. That could be a lot longer.) The Paihi Bridge is undergoing repairs again. This means those that are looking to go to Oheo Gulch (7 sacred pools) will have to drive the [...]
