Honokalani Black Sand Beach, Maui

Along Maui’s eastern edge near the small fishing town of Hana you will find beautiful Honokalani black sand beach. Located within Wainapanapa Sate Park, this beach offers pleasant coastal hikes, blowholes, and nearby ponds and bamboo forests. It is well known for its jet  black sand that practically shouts out in contrast to the bright blues and greens that encroach upon it.

The park has camping for tents and cars. There are a couple of well-groomed walking paths and interpretive signs along part of the shoreline. A walk farther west will take you over jagged a’a lava fields to short cliff overlooks that are constantly buffeted by waves that have gone untouched for roughly 2,000 miles.

About Rob DeCamp

I am a professional photographer living on Maui, in the State of Hawaii. I made my living shooting weddings, but now have shifted my energy to nature photography. What started as a hobby, has now become my passion. I love to explore nature, and capture the ever changing colors and shapes that I find. No matter how many times I go back to the same place, it never is the same. The lighting, the weather all change to give me a different feeling. I think that is what inspires me to keep shooting!
