Hamoa Beach, located south of the quaint little town of Hana, has already made an impression on James Michener, author of the popular novel Hawaii.
Michener called Hamoa Beach the most beautiful in the Pacific. And quite true.

This beach is often ranked up there with the famous beaches in the resort areas of Maui, and deservingly so.
A postcard-perfect 100 wide by 1000 long crescent.
Shaped like a half-moon, Hamoa Beach is about 900 feet long and 100 feet wide with gray sand comprised of a mix of coral and lava.
This flawless beach is surrounded by tropical growth and 30-foot high black lava sea cliffs with nice views of the palm-topped seabird sanctuary offshore which is known as Alau Island.
Hamoa Beach is known as one of the island’s best bodysurfing beaches.
Hamoa Beach is the best place for snorkeling when the water is calm, particularly during the summer.

Hamoa Beach is also a popular surf break – in fact this break has been surfed by Hawaiians since ancient times.
Boogie boarding and bodysurfing are also popular here.
Snorkeling can be good around the left of the cove, however this beach is exposed to open ocean; be aware that powerful currents and surf can often be present – especially toward the ends of the beach.
