Maui Sightseeing – Wai’anapanapa Black Sand Beach

By now, you surely know that there is just so much to see and do on Maui, and aside from your Maui luau, you are working through your to-do list, trying to figure out what you really want to do when you are on vacation. With incredible activities like snorkeling and downhill bike rides, you’re going to have your share of adventure and thrills. A big part of visiting any Hawaiian Island is to explore and sightsee a bit, checking out all of the amazing natural sites and places around the island. One of the most famous stops when you are out on Maui sightseeing is Wai’anapanapa Black Sand Beach, a tropical retreat that is not far from the quaint town of Hana.

Visitors are often surprised to find out that there are more than just white sand beaches in Hawaii, and even if you’ve seen a black sand beach, the site is still remarkable. And Wai’anapanapa is more than just a beach, it is an entire beach park, with places to sit and eat, caves for exploring, and views that cannot be beat. You can spread a blanket out and enjoy your surroundings, exercising extreme caution when entering the water. Due to its location on the island and unpredictability of the ocean, this beach can be quit treacherous.

The drive to Wai’anapanapa is one of the most famous drives in the country, winding along the Maui Mountains and coastline on the Hana Highway. The highway features more than 600 turns and over 100 bridges, with scenery that you will not believe. At times, the road seems so narrow that a vehicle can possibly make the drive, but that is just part of the fun on the Road to Hana. And once you arrive at the black sand beach after a little Maui sightseeing, your day will be perfect.

A to-do list for a Maui vacation usually includes a handful of must do activities: snorkeling, an authentic Maui luau, , a sunrise at Haleakala, and the Road to Hana. Add one more activity to your list and spend some time at Wai’anapanapa Black Sand Beach. Most visitors get to see the beach and the beach park during a guided tour around the Road to Hana, and you can return to the beach after your Maui sightseeing tour around the highway to spend more time enjoy the exotic beauty of the destination.
