Hamoa Beach is consistently named one of “Maui’s Best Beaches” each year. Hamoa made the list again as “America’s Best Beaches” in 2012 by Dr. Beach in his annual list of top beaches. Dr. Beach (Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman) is Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University and is generally considered the country’s foremost authority on beaches. Author James Michener wrote about this perfectly formed crescent beach lined with Hala trees.
