Amazing place for a picnic or a hike to the fishermen village. Beautiful views. Offers lots of seclusion. Once you get there park on the main parking lot - pay once and you can use the parking stab for a week (ask park ranger for the details). Restrooms available by the main bulding, as well as guided tours(on a schedule). You can go and see sacred space - no food allowed. If you drive further over the slightly rougher road you will get to a picnic area. Grills and picnic tables are available. Beautiful views but no swimming or snorkeling. Opportunity to see goats once on the trail.

Beautiful park...lovely for sitting in the beach, perfect for seeing turtles and enjoying the relaxed and beautiful scenery. Very often you will see local sure to stay out if the water and very far back on shore so they can do what they need to to feed their families. This is not the type of beach where you would swim or snorkel safely. Be sure to stop and visit the interpretive centre to learn more about the early Hawaiian culture.

If you want a quiet low traffic beach with sand to sit in at low tide it's a pretty nice place. You'll probably see some turtles pulling up to get warm. Kind of shallow for snorkeling. It would be hard to walk over the slippery rocks at high tide.

This park is for determined people positively interested in Hawaiian history. It is a barren terrain with the artifacts less visually engaging than in a regular historic park. The walk with petroglyphs is very informative and educational. The 1 mile of restored Mà„malahoa Trail, part of the ancient road running through the Big Island, gives a good sense what it was like to travel through this volcanic terrain 100 or 200 years ago. The Visitor Center rangers are a great resource. Be sure to ask them for details of the trails. Some of the trails are still under development and the going is often rough. Be prepared with good shoes, sunscreen, map and water when you set out to explore the park.

Great place to explore, and see turtles. Please stay 20 feet away from them though! We also saw lots of beautiful fish and sea life in the tide pools.
