Dr. Beach - Top 10 beaches of 2012

"To get to Hamoa Beach, one has to take the Road to Hana, the treacherous road with drop-offs of over 1,000 feet and sporadic guardrails, which can be an adventure in itself! Taking it slow on this road, with over 50 one-way bridges, is probably the safest bet. Ernest Hemmingway once said that Hamoa Beach was the worlds best beach."
