Honokalani Beach, Wai'anapanapa State Park, Maui, HI.jet-black shore, lapis lazuli waters and thick, jungle-like foliage, Honokalani Beach is a photographer’s dream. Besides lying lazily on the “sand”—actually made up of of tiny lava pebbles—there’s plenty to do: you’ll find seaside lava tubes and sea caves carved into the lava cliffs along the shore. It’s wild, unspoiled Hawaii at its best, and a necessary stop en route to Hana.
Pipiwai Trail - (May be part of the Road to Hana tour.) The whole hike will take 3 to 4 hours depending on how many stops you make, and get there early before the day trippers get there. It is great to have the trail and the falls all to yourseves.
