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...

Lifeguards were terrific here! Parkland lawns clean and refreshing! Nice shower to wash off salt. Nice shade areas to picnic. The colors of the surf, pond, trees, surf, ocean were total eye candy! The thermal pond was a fabulous experience. I suggest getting there early in the day...for instance, morning, to enjoy as it gets crowded later on...

Not crowded. There are warm spots within the pool. Dont freak out if the water seems alive - there are little fish/tadpoles in it. There are showers nearby which is helpful because the water leaves brown stuff on you - fish poo?
