True
How about: what's your favorite "secret" ingredient? Mine is cheek meat @Something Fishy

Oh yeah. Just stocked up yesterday.

Real credit though goes to @MC who turned me on to it.

On the road to Hana you may come across numerous random beach spots that nobody is really on.

Indeed. Venus Pool is often empty (can see from the road if any cars are parked there), and there are many other spots although some of them are on the south side and aren't really swimmable. Ching's Pond, while not a beach, is also a great place to swim and is often deserted.

In South Maui, Kaewanaku Beach requires a serious hike but is absolutely worth it (see my TR). There are also some options in west Maui, check the book.

So with an A6000 what would've been the best way?

Exposure for the moon is very fast. A full moon can be exposed at something around f/11, 1/250, and ISO 200. The smaller the lit moon the slower your exposure, obviously, but you are still talking medium apertures, fastish shutter speeds, and low ISOs.

Now during an eclipse the moon appears darker, so you DO want a tripod and you'd need a higher ISO (you still want a medium aperture to keep the moon's features perfectly sharp).

A tripod is a must. If you don't have one, rest the camera on something. Not straight at the sky, something of an angle.

Make sure that there are no other light sources in your shot.

Open the aperture as wide as it'll go, bump the iso as high as you're comfortable with, and take your shutter to 30 seconds (usually the max).

Try to get something interesting in the foreground, like trees.

Trial and error, and lots of luck will get you there

...all accurate, for star shots. Completely wrong for the moon, which is actually extremely bright.

So taking your points on at a time, for typical moon shots:

A tripod is handy, absolutely not required.

Other light sources are irrelevant so long as your lens is not pointing directly (or nearly directly) at them.

Exposure for the moon is very fast. A full moon can be exposed at something around f/11, 1/250, and ISO 200. The smaller the lit moon the slower your exposure, obviously, but you are still talking medium apertures, fastish shutter speeds, and low ISOs.

Now during an eclipse the moon appears darker, so you DO want a tripod and you'd need a higher ISO (you still want a medium aperture to keep the moon's features perfectly sharp).

Using your suggested settings - widest aperture, high ISO, and 30 seconds - will result in a completely white blown out moon, no matter the stage or situation.

Should I ask what prompted this earth shattering discovery?

No! A thousand times no!

Good thing your AC is only fighting about the water and not....

No one's fighting about anything. We just both discovered yesterday that we each use a different temp and we're each convinced that the other is a freak of nature.
