Dragon's Teeth

Haleakala Summit and Crater
  • Hana
  • Possibly the best representation of Hana is the multitude of bumper stickers reading "Thank God For Hana" that cruise the highways of Maui. It suggests that, to its residents, there is no place else on earth quite as wonderful as this quaint island town.

  • Steep slopes dotted with boulders ejected from old volcanic eruptions meet a wild ocean, rough and deep. Wave after churning wave crashes into Maui with all the strength gained since leaving the stormy waters of the north Pacific.

Red Sand Beach
  • Red Sand Beach
  • Be sure to stop by Red Sand Beach on the Road to Hana because you won't find anything else like it on the island. Park on the roadside, then follow a short path around the massive cinder cone known as Ka'uiki Hill, where continuous erosion created and replenishes the beach you see today.

Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach
  • Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach
  • It's not merely a black sand beach. All the lava rock features here don this deep charcoal hue. Smooth pebbles wash over each other as waves topple ashore. A cavernous rock shelter to the right opens up to the ocean. A sizeable boulder juts above sea level in the near distance.
