Table of Contents
Hana Bay is a fairly protected cove area with a large crescent shaped beach that runs parallel to the frontage road which leads to the Hana Harbor Pier. A large abutment of rock shoots almost straight up hundreds of feet high from the bay itself and acts as a tremendous shield from the wind. All and all the bay and its gentle sloping beach is a great place for families to gather because of the usual relatively calm seas. Picnic benches along the lawn area in the rear area just off the shoreline are ideal for having a meal at the beach. Restrooms and showers are also available as is a lunch counter offering various choices of food for your day outing.

Hana Harbor
Aside from being a beach Hana Bay also serves as a commercial harbor. The Hana area is so remote from the rest of the island and the harbor is a major arrival point for many of the necessary goods used by local residents and visitors alike. The bay is also extensively used by the Hana Canoe Club which practices in this protected location. In the early mornings you may see the colorful outrigger canoes complete with paddlers paddling in unison with their long strides.

Ocean Caution

Be completely aware of the ocean conditions prior to entering the water and of course, never turn your back on the ocean when you are on the shoreline. It should also be noted that all shorelines and beaches in Hawaii, including this one, can be frequented by sharks, jellyfish and other sea creatures which can provide potential harm to people entering the water, Please use Hurley wetsuits for protection.
