  • Drove up to this beach - about 30 minutes if Kona to see the turtles. It's by the Four Seasons hotels so we stopped at the gate and asked the guard if the turtles were in - he said yes - showed us the...  more »

  • Great place to see sea turtles and enjoy beautiful beach views for sunrise or sunsets or just enjoy a picnic on a beach.

  • This place is majestic. There is an inlet from the sea to fresh water ponds. Dozens of Honu (sea turtles) are traveling in or out almost all of the time. The water is crystal clear. You need to bring water the trail can get hot. Where the trail end at the beach make a right and keep going until you pass the house and come to the inlet. It is very unique and made out of large stones so you will know when your there.
  • If you are willing to take the long hike to this secluded amazing beach it is well worth the trip. Nothing short of a once in a lifetime experience for me here. I'm glad I took the road less traveled.
  • Three stars because of the Sea Turtles. Nothing else seemed special about it. The beach itself is rocks, very little sand. Under the surface of the water is plenty of sharp things, hence the bleeding feet. It is pretty, but so are many other areas. Actually another positive is that it does not seem crowded. I suspect that is due to the hike to get here and the poor beach. Again, turtles are the redeeming factor.
  • Great place to see turtles. Drove in from between 82-83 mile markers and walked along the coast. We saw at least 5 turtles, 1 on the pebbles out of the water. Very cool. At the end of the walk is the light blue water. The walk is just under 1 mile (1.5 km) but it is over difficult terrain, mainly pebbles but areas of sand and lava rock. Covered walking shoes would be better than sandals.
  • Windswept black lava rocky beach with a series of rock pools and freshwater lava tube. Park just after mile mark 81 and hike in. Teeming with green turtles. Please respect the turtles and leave them alone, unlike other visitors touching resting ones or ploughing into the water.
