Swimming at Red Sand Beach
This photo is from my vintage photo album, and it shows two swimmers at a remote beach in Hana called Red Sand Beach. To arrive at this remote (clothing optional) beach, one has to hike along a narrow and sometimes perilous trail, and that's the only way in and out.
Three of us got caught in a riptide once while swimming here, and we had to swim like hell--horizontal to the beach--to make it back to the beach. We were all exhausted and happy to be alive.
