This beach is about 3 miles south of Hana, Maui.  The side closest to the red cliff has a bit of red sand, with a little red mixed into the coral based sand on the rest of the beach.  I walked up and down this beach before sunrise several times before spotting the symmetry between the cloud and the reflection in the periodically wet sand.  Then I waited for a while until the sand was wet again.  Two minutes later the light was bright and harsh and the show was over.  I believe that Ophah Winfrey owns this hill and the land behind it and to the right.  You can barely make out a striking sea arch on the right side.  It can not be accessed without crossing the land, at least from this side.
