on Red Sand Beach

14 days ago

This is a fantastic location. The trail to the beach will take about five minutes to walk and does have some mildly steep spots. There are some small tide pools and cliff jumping spots on the trail to the beach that are enjoyable. The beach is in a secluded location protecting it from wind and some weather. There is a ring of rocks out in the water that slow down the waves creating a calm location with clear water. The water is calm enough for small children to easily swim in.

Great location. This location is great for cliff diving, there are a few small beach areas. The location is in a small river inlet that is enclosed by rocks from the ocean. When there is little rain run off sometimes the water can be kind of gross from plant matter.

lots of people. beautiful falls. bring water shoes.

quick and easy. very beautiful. check in advance if swimming is open (was not for us in July).

Very crowded. Basically could have driven to the first and second falls. The upper falls had a nice pool everyone could swim in. If you go to the second falls make sure you have water shoes. Good hike to do with the whole family.

Very nice hike. Easy except for the river you must cross. But take it show and you’ll get through. A little walk over a wall to the river and falls. Beautiful.

Really beautiful falls. Get there early as it is a bit of a zoo. However most people do not continue past the closed gates marked “experienced hikers only” so once you clear that it is more serene and there are more pools.

Incredible end of the trail to a hidden cove where the beach is. Some step cliffs but plenty of places to hang onto. Not many folks on the beach. Just a lovely place!

very busy "trail" upper falls trail was closed

Fairly easy and short trail but it does have some steep drop-offs that could be deadly if you fall into the rough water. Be careful. The views of the crashing waves are amazing. Also, when we were there we saw some naked guys with their Johnsons all out and about so be careful and check before you bring the kids around the last corner where you see the people on the beach. The sign at the end of the trail says NUDE BEACH.

The truth is every trail in Maui is beautiful - some are muddier than others - this is stroll and requires no skill to run or walk - there's a nice stream - if you like Cambodian gum trees there are a few magnificent ones

Easy with light elevation change - difficult to run up the hill towards the "unaccessable" water fall - beautiful trail - Once you get to the water fall, if you have the juevos to jump across you can trek up the stream to a real water fall and swimming pond - get there early as it loads up with people and parking is limited on the Hana Hwy. - worth the stop for a quick trek up the hill.

$15 to get in - this is a leisurly stroll with very little elevaation change - beautiful grounds with a couple of really nice look outs - worth the stop and the $15

Not a difficult hike, but not much to see. There are much nicer views on the Road to Hana.

Easy hike with great views. Pools were closed due to high waters, but I was still able to get some amazing shots. Parking was $25 so make sure to hit as much as possible while you're here.

Such a beautiful beach! There are lots of signs on the trail that say it is dangerous, but it's really not a huge deal. There are some steep dropoffs, but the trail is sturdy and wide.

The beach itself was amazing. Not many people know about it, so we had it all to ourselves

Outstanding Red sand cove! Definitely a top 5 ever. The hike down builds the excitement then the natural cove and red sand is AWESOME!

LOVE THE HIKE AND BEACH!

Note: there is an old painted sign on the rocks near the beach that says "nude beach," this is likely dated and did not apply to our awesome excursion.

No trail head to speak of, overgrown considerably and on private land....all enough to keep moving elsewhere.

Pretty neat place, worth the stop. Staff provides good info but there is a cost to incur. Locals get a discount.

Hike traverses private land, pay attention to signs and respect the land!

This is still my most favorite hike. It's truly a must! The massive waterfall can't be beat!

This is one of the best easily accessible hikes on Maui. I always recommend it to people. Make sure you go all the way to the end! You need to swim for about 5 minutes to reach the last waterfall.

There wasn't much to see the day I was there in January. Plenty of vegetation along the trail but no lookout points, waterfalls, or other points of interest. Perhaps the jungle was overgrown to the point of blocking the view...?

It's an amazing pool and close by cave in deep 20 ft water perfect for diving 30 feet down into the pools of brackish water. While it's a little muddy to get down to the water, there are plenty of places to jump in for the adventurous!
