Located on the east side of the island Hamoa Beach is one of Mauiís top beaches. It was recently voted #4 in the world. Yes, it takes a while to get there, but once youíre in Hana and see Hamoa beach, youíll know why. It is a lovely beach nestled at the foot of Mount Haleakala. There are facilities here. The property is shared with the Hotel Hana Maui, so they might have exclusive rights over the beach equipment. Hamoa is paradise. The water is crystal clear and the sand is soft and reddish brown. The views across the open ocean are breathtaking. On a clear day you can see the Big Island. Youíll feel as if you are no longer on Maui but on some other remote island in the Pacific.

Snorkeling at Hamoa Beach is fantastic, simply because the water has so much visibility. Always remember that conditions may change. During summer months the wind kicks up the waves on this side and it can get rough quidkly. Surfers like to take advantage of a right-breaking wave in the middle of the bay. On any good sized swell, usually created by Mauiís trade winds, Hamoa Beach can reach sizes of 6 to 10 feet. For body boarders, Hamoa Beach is a spot more inside to the south of the beach and the shore break there can be really good. Watch out for the patches of rock in the sand here and there.

Hamoa Beach is on the wet side of the island in Mauiís tropical rainforest. It rains frequently, especially in winter. Plan your trip when the weather is sunny. Remember that the rain is also what makes Hana so beautiful. Head along the coastline from Hamoa and youíll pass an old Hawaiian fishing village. Youíll see natural ocean fishponds on the way, too.

"Secluded Hamoa Beach"
Reviewed March 30, 2014
Hamoa beach near Hana is such an oasis with crystal clear waters, its such a secluded small beach. During winter months its an awesome spot for (mostly) local surfers with almost perfect contains. When its flat its one of the best beaches for snorkeling, swimming. On weekends, many local familes enjoy Hamoa and its becoming a "local family affair". Definitely a beach you can recommend to your friends!
