Hiking Hawaii- Makena Black Sand Beach

If you ever are in Maui and in the Makena-area of the island, do yourself a favor and go on a mini-hike to the Black Sand beach of Makena.

The hike is along a rutted road

and while the hike isn't particularly challenging (I think there is a 5 foot elevation gain), it does take you through a jungle-setting of Maui

Winding your way through the forest, you eventually pop out on the beach and it is a great thing when you do because the views are spectacular.

You don't need to go on a long hike in Hawaii to find beauty and this short hike is well worth your time. 

I was particularly struck by the black/reddish sand and also how it was tucked in to the hills and rocks surrounding it, like a black pocket amongst green and brown splotches (a poet I am not).

Definitely check out this beach!
