Lived on Maui for 2 years and used to come up here to camp just to get the Northern California vibe and fresh cool air. It’s a great base camp for sunrise, sunset, or my personal favorite overnight stargazing at Haleakala summit. My boyfriend and I always bring small firewood and light a campfire in the raised grill… it’s SURPRISINGLY cold at Hosmer at night, so this usually brought the neighbors around to share bottles and talk story. Have met a ton of amazing people from around the world on this tiny patch of grass!
LOVED a three day stay here camping on the sand and gazing out over the high bluffs to one of the best sunset views in all Hawaii. Rent a 4WD Jeep, take 80% of the air out of your tires and enjoy.
