A must visit but be careful. The drive to it is filled with lava rocks and flat tires. But when you step on the soft sand and see miles of pulm trees, waves and post card pictures you don't want to leave. Next to airport so go as soon as you land. You will not regret this trip.bring food, water and baby wipes nothing around to buy them.

Beautiful white sand beaches await the hiker who trudges across the lava field to reach them. These beaches are made for movies about a tropical paradise. There is plenty of shade on the beaches.

My experience getting back there during daylight on my mountain bike bicycle was great fun. It's wonderful road were quick thinking skills can be practiced. I don't recommend taking small low clearance vehicles. It's very challenging if you're not used to this. 4x4 Jeep I would highly recommend it or vehicle similar. Once you get back there and park you follow this trail to get to the beach that most people seemed most attracted to. Enjoy!!!!!!!

Beautiful calm water with ability to snorkel around the edges. Get here early, parking is limited! Showers & restrooms available. Also local food truck on site with shaved ice.

Great off site beach. Fair warning it is a bumpy road (Mahai Hula) site... Take the closed to cars access road after parking gate to a delightful beach house. White sands, green and blue clear ocean and very few rocks... 😎
