  • We like this beach for a few reasons. It has the softest sand. There are facilities to use. And there is dolphins that hang close by. You can camp there as well. It can get crowded sometimes but it’s ...  more »
  • We stopped here on a drive around the Big Island. The snorkelling was not great but the beach was nice. Mainly locals (families) but a nice spot to stop. Black sand beach so was a bit hot on the toes ...  more »
  • We have visited many beaches on Hawaii and found this to be our favorite. Snorkeling very fun, good diversity, and the spinner dolphins hang out there often. It is neat to have them swim around you an...  more »

  • This is definitely a locals beach. Lots of families here enjoying the swimming. We found the snorkeling to be excellent! Both the left and right sides had great reefs with lots going on. There is a stand where you can buy food or rent equipment. There is shade, though much of it is taken up by camping. It's a black sand beach (more like dark grey sand), so bring flip flops!
  • Absolutely love camping here! Wonderful staff of hooked beach friends! They have camp spaces available AND they rent out snorkel gear, kayaks, boards, etc! Absolutely beautiful beach and good but more gentle waves at times! Definitely a great place for sunsets! Simply a must see on the island the drive is even well worth it.
  • Great sand. Beautiful lava shoreline with lots of tide pools for little ones to play in. Snorkeling is good also. South end of beach has sandy bottom which is the best place for swimming and body surfing without having to worry about hitting rocks or coral. Dolphins come in frequently. Camping right on the beach. Kayaks and paddle boards and life jackets available to rent.
  • Very wide and clean beach. There are showers and restrooms as well. The driving is bit tricky with very narrow roads, sometime it’s one way. There is a small parking area and then a big parking lot (not to be confused with camping parking lot). Sand is clean and not rocky.
  • Beautiful little beach with black sand tucked away. There's a snack bar, bathrooms, and showers. Teeny camping is cheap but competitive. The cliffs overlooking are were ali'i (royalty) were interned in lava tubes long ago, so there's history along with a beautiful reef! Love this place, but the sand being black means the sand gets very hot- bring slippers or water shoes
