Located on Kaihalulu Bay, Red Sand Beach is one of the only red sand beaches in the entire world. The sands are a deep, red-black color that pop next to the clear Hawaii waters. - Maui Jim

Lens Material: MauiPure®
The perfect lens for the everyday active lifestyle, MauiPure® is the lightest weight choice for long days in the sun. Scratch and impact-resistant, these lenses are injection moulded for the crispest optics next to glass.
Maui Jim's proprietary, silicone-based hard coating protects the lenses. Glass is naturally scratch resistant, but MauiPure®, Maui Evolution® and polycarbonate lenses perform better for longer with the enhanced durability of Maui Jim's optically correct Clearshell®. This is applied to the inner and outer lens surfaces.
Maui Jim lenses block 100% of all harmful UV rays, giving the eyes essential protection from damage and long-term health risks. Sunglasses which do not provide UV protection can actually cause greater damage because they shade the eye, causing the pupil to dilate and allow in more UV rays.
Maui Jim fuse their premium polarising film into the lens itself. This results in superior precision, absolute clarity and a near complete elimination of glare reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.
PolarizedPlus2® delivers the highest level of efficiency in blocking horizontal glare. Known as the most common glare, horizontal glare is reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.
The design of Maui Jim's original Bi-Gradient Mirror was inspired by Inuit snow goggles. A reflective surface at the top and bottom of the lens squints for you to relax the eyes.
Intense light from direct sunlight above and from reflected glare below are both dampened by the Bi-Gradient Mirror. This lens treatment is perfectly suited to strong sun conditions.
Just as glare can affect the view in front of you, "bounce-back" glare from behind can cause the eyes to strain and impair your view of the world.
A patented, essential anti-reflective lens treatment on the inner surface of the lens blocks reflected light and glare from behind, enhancing clarity and eliminating eye fatigue.
Every Maui Jim lens is designed to provide a winning combination of clarity, shading, glare reduction and contrast enhancement to provide vision in the truest and clearest colours possible. Maui Jim's PolarizedPlus2® lenses enhance the colours your eyes absorb, so you see vibrant, saturated colours with a higher contrast and greater depth perception. Here's a taste of the difference in vision you can expect from a Maui Jim lens. These images are not retouched.
- Intense sunglight washes out colours
- High levels of glare cause squinting and make vision uncomfortable
- No contrast enhancement means subtle differences in terrain are more difficult to spot
- Shading helps to maintain a richness of colour
- Polarising filter and mirrors block discomforting glare for all-day comfortable wear
- Contrast enhancement makes colours “pop” and accentuates relief
