This local gathering place is great for picnics on summer days when you may see outrigger canoes clubs practicing, community events taking place, or people just enjoying the grassy lawn and black/brown sand beach created by eroded lava. Hana Bay is typically very calm as it is relatively well protected from the open sea, making it nice for swimming. Hana Pier is located on the right side of the bay along with a small boat harbor.
