We so enjoyed the heated waters here. Very healing and relaxing. Really did my tired muscles some good. I noted an earlier post about dirty water. I did not find the pool dirty at all. In fact, I had a cut on my finger that was not healing and the warm salt water of the pool was apparently what was... More

The warm waters of this park are contained behind a partial concrete sea wall which allows the inflow of ocean water. The pool is very big, the water a perfect temperature and little fish are swimming around. Not to be missed!

Are you feeling cold and looking for a natural hot spa..? Here is the place you can enjoy some hot water...seawater heated from the hot ground. If you bring your BBQ stuff, you can also enjoy some great time eating (facilities are provided).

From Kehena Beach, it was about a 20-30 min drive to what we kept reading as a must see attraction. The drive was nice, a pleasant winding road covered on both sides with banyan trees and bamboo. If you drive too fast, you'll miss the entrance. It was really nothing more than a sectioned off "natural" pool of warm water... More

We were staying in a rental, about one mile from this park, which made it a convenient place to visit. There is a life guard on duty at this natural, protected thermal pool. The views are great, and the waters always about 90 degrees, being heated by the volcanoes. A very popular park to visit, with picnic facilities & parking... More

It was a rainy Feb day when we decided to check out Ahalanui Park and the water. Turns out it's a great place to relax and swim, or snorkel and splash, with or without kids. The day we went there were perhaps 30 people at the Park in and out of the water, though many more would fit comfortably. The... More

Really loved just sitting in the shade of the tree and watching everyone else have fun. My son persuaded me to have a go and loved it. Doesn't matter if you can't swim, you can stand at the edge and enjoy the water. I thought it might be too hot but the temperature of the water is just right. With... More

We all enjoyed it here. It is a safe swimming area for families and the water is warm (unless you get too close to the incoming ocean water). There are fish in the water which I thought was cool, but may make some people uncomfortable. The port-a-potties are big enough to change comfortably. I recommend water shoes because the bottom...

Our cottage was close to this place, so we went there several times. Always quite empty and relaxing, probably different on weekends when the people from Pahoa searching for some swimming spots. With lifeguard, showers and toilets - for free! Don't forget to bring your goggles, there are some fishes in the water.

Only minutes from Kapoho area. Water was warmer than the tide pools, but not hot. Greenish in colour. Some varieties of fish. Glad to atleast experience. Continue down south on the same road to see the 'new' black sand beach.
