There are so many wonderful sights in Hawaii and, then, there are truly incredible places that knock your socks off. Waianapanapa is one of those knock-your-socks-off places.
The black sand beach at Waianapanapa is a short diversion off Maui’s winding road to Hana. It’s one of the must-see stops that we include in our road to Hana advice.
The brilliant green vegetation and ocean blues seem to be amplified by the black sand and rugged lava shoreline.
