Located almost in the heart of Hana town, on the eastern coast of Maui, is one of the few red sand beaches in the world. The breathtaking Kaihalulu Red Sand Beach is one of the most incredible wonders you’ll see in your lifetime, and an absolute must-visit, as long as you are accustomed to navigating cliff edges with less-than-perfect footing.

The only other red sand beaches I can find mention of throughout the world include Cavendish Beach, on Prince Edward Island in Canada, and Kokkini Beach found in Santorini, Greece.

We’ll stick with Hawaii, though, where we have access to beaches in a variety of colors, and some of the most incredible scenery around.
