  • Been before lovely little spot always a turtle or 6 to be seen, sheltered bay for kids to have a swim in. Easy walk from a car park and close to Kona  more »
  • There's a small building with a Ranger, bathrooms, and a gift shop. You can take a short walk to the beach and see turtles.  more »
  • The history of this area was very interesting, nice little trails through the grounds. There's a snorkeling area just outside the park called two steps if you take the one way road instead of hitting ...  more »

  • Neat place to learn about local history. Children enjoyed visitor center. Hike through park is best taken early morning or on a cloudy day given how hot it can get.
  • One of my favorite places to go swim and snorkel with my small children. Every single time we go there we see sea turtles!! But please remember to stay a minimum of 20ft away from them.
  • Great park with a pretty but rocky main beach and a ~ 1.5 mile trail through a cooled lava field to a beautiful white sand beach for swimming and surfing and stuff. We also saw an 800 pound monk seal sunning itself which was sick. The access road is long and rugged so a low ridding car might not make it, but a regular sedan should be fine if u drive slow
  • Lot of shade. Easy, shallows for snorkeling. Good for wading with kids. Only outhouses. No showers. Beautiful place.
  • Lovely beach, and not as heavily populated makes for a quiet afternoon. It does not take long to see a turtle make it's way onto the beach to soak up the sun. Not quite as picturesque as a typical beach, and your milage may vary with swimming, but great opportunity to snorkel or relax.
