Most of the time when we travel to luxurious places, we choose our destination based on which offer the famous landmarks, urban shopping districts, lavish nightlife, or a relaxing paradise with the classic, clear blue waters and creamy sand beaches. These types of “paradise beach retreats” provide us with an opportunity to mentally escape hectic daily challenges, and physically free ourselves from technology, noise, work, and commotion. However, the same blue sky and calming ocean setting may become quite repetitive, especially for those who enjoy a change in adventure.  Next trip, try going beyond the picturesque post-card vacation, and visit a beach dissimilar from the stereotypical golden coast. Embrace the exotic colours of these spectacular beaches, each with its own story of how it came to represent a unique hue of the rainbow. Unlike 95% of five-star resorts which all have similar concepts, décor, architecture, and identical beaches, these vibrantly coloured destinations are perfect for a day excursion to see beyond the haven of tranquility we are most familiar with as luxury travelers.

11 Ruby Red: Red Sand Beach, Kaihalulu Bay, Maui, Hawaii

The Hawaiian island of Maui attracts over 2, 750, 000 tourists a year, accumulating expenditures of over $3.5 billion US dollars. Red Sand Beach at Kaihalulu Bay is located on the Eastern shore of Maui, just south of Hana Bay. The sand derives its colour from the lava cinders which come off the crumbling, cindercone, Ka’uiki Cliffside. The beach itself is secluded in a hidden bay, and requires a short yet precarious hike to reach the destination; its intimate privacy also makes it a popular hangout for nude sunbathers! This is a necessary stop along the famous Hana Highway excursion, “Road to Hana”, which features unique sights indigenous to America’s tropical state, such as the Twin Falls, Garden of Eden, and several enchanting look-out spots.
