We visit this park after spending some time in nearby tide pools. The park has nice scenery and good facilities (showers etc). Inside the pool, warm water coming out of the holes on the walls seems therapeutic and relaxing. Watching big waves crashing against the sea walls is a sight to behold.

Where else can you experience anything like that? Local people are lucky to have a chance to use such pool with hot thermal waters. They also told us that if you're sensitive, you may have troubles with bacteria in them, so some people don't dare bathing there. However, the environment is beautiful there.

Great place for relaxed swimming. The locals were very friendly and water was 90-95 degrees. Parking is limited but overall a really nice place. Lots of families and kids having fun.

Very peaceful and amazing location. Warm water, and life guard on duty. I wish I could have spent more time in this thermal tide pool or hot spa paradise.

Cool place to chill for a while. The pond is very warm, about 90 degrees, and easy to enter and exit with stairs around the pond. It was ultra cool when the rain came down for a few minutes while sitting in the warm pond. There is a shower here and a life guard was on duty. The only restroom... More

A wonderful, inlet of Hawaiian ocean water warmed by the heat from the lava flow that formed it. Enjoy the fishes, the roar of the waves breaking at the entrance and sloshing through all the while floating/paddling in the delightfully warm water. Park has lifeguard , a fresh water shower to wash off the salt and some portapotties to use/change... More

We loved the warm salt water heated by underground lava tubes. We loved only having to drive about five minutes to the Ahalaunui ponds. We love coming home to the most beautiful home in Kapoho. The Kahonua Hale. If your in the Kapoho region, and, we strongly suggest you visit Kapoho, call the property manager Winston at 8908-960-1926 and book... More

Spectacular! I LOVED it. Warm sea water, only a few feet deep, floating with the fishes, listening to the ocean. Next time I'll schedule a message in the pond. Great afternoon destination before dinner.

We loved this hot volcanic-heated pool! Visited twice---the first time after hiking the incredibly steep road into and out of Waipi.o Valley. We were so sore, but a couple of hours in this toasty pool really helped with our aching leg muscles. It's so warm that we just plopped right into the water and lay back and enjoyed the soothing...
