Such a beautiful, peaceful and exciting place to Snorkle. Families go fishing, bbq, and you can relax, enjoy the scenery, the waves hitting the rocks, and see turtles near the shore. Very enjoyable and worth the trip.

Happened upon this little gem of a place because we thought we would stop to get information. Stayed for ukulele lessons, a fabulous quiet beach experience and a sea turtle display that was spectacular. Thanks Rance and Katie for all of your local charm.

I came with my family yesterday and we weren't quite sure what to expect but a minute after stepping onto the beach, we found a turtle basking in the sun. The beach itself is very nice - great sand, beautiful water, quiet, and pretty empty. If you wait long enough you might get to see the turtles slowly leaving or... More

We were looking to see some petroglyphs but the access road was closed for maintenance. The Ranger directed us on the map to where we could see a temple, a canoe building hut, etc. What he didn't tell us was there is this killer beach where you can swim with sea turtles and do some great snorkeling. We ended up... More

Nestled between Honokohau Marina and the the Kona airport this small National Park is an absolute must see. The visitor center is located right of of 19/11 with... More

Just returned from this beautiful place, we only went to end closest to Kona, just three miles from town, take turn to boat harbour and follow road around to right. Plenty of parking in boat car parking. Short walk, 5minutes to beach. Only 3 other couples on beach when we arrived. Not suitable for surfing as fairly shallow, good for... More

This place is one out of the books. It's paradise on earth. A very positive thing is that it is not crowded. You can walk all by yourself without bumping into a living soul. That is also the reason why you can enjoy the fauna and flora. Birds and turtles populate the beach.

I have been to plenty of National Parks in my life. Kaloko-Honokohau National Park is just wonderful. Take your time and really look at all this park has to offer. Take a tour with a guide who can point out the many plants, animals, fish, and beaches this unique place has to offer. Don't miss it!
