We got confused at the beginning of the trail. If you go to your right (closer to the water) from the parking lot, you hit water. Thought we had taken the wrong path. Turned around and took the path up to the left, full of “no trespassing” signs. Other reviews I had read said you will see no trespassing signs, but that there’s an easement, so I thought it still might be okay. Walked past some barking rabid looking dogs and shanties straight out is “Deliverance” until we were turned around by a local who told us we were on the wrong path. Turned around again. Took the path on the right and hit water. This off our shoes and waded in in our snorkeling boots. Don’t try this barefoot. Lots of lava rocks. You have to wade less than 50 yards. Then put your shoes back on and the rest of the trail was pretty intuitive. Once we got there it was nice. Not spectacular, but nice. Okay snorkeling.

1st off, there is a hike - about 25 minutes. This is an old Hawaiian village so respect the locals. It is not Waikiki! Finally, bring water and be ready to pack out what you brought in (garbage included). The hike in is an experience in itself. One walks by a beautiful (and private bay) and through some water. There is a great walk through the forest then over a lava flow then more forest before you get to this secluded beach. We hiked there in the morning on a Saturday and there was only one other person (Hi Richard!) there. Water was great for swimming and snorkeling in the waves and there were dolphins hanging out in the bay. And thanks to Richard, (borrowed a spear) he tried his hand at spear fishing. Later on more people showed up and swam around with them. Amazing! If you are looking for a nice hike, a seculded beach (at least when we were there in the morning), and something unusual, this is your place!

We loved visiting this blackish sand beach. The hike in is moderate and the snorkeling once you get there is fair. The secluded nature and picturesque scenery is reason enough to go to this beach. If you don’t get there early, be sure to pack in an umbrella.

This is a very local/native community and that is made clear by the vibe at the parking lot, which is their bbq and hang out area. You literally have to walk the line between ancient fish ponds and keep out signs on the back of their houses to get there which is nearly impossible at high tide as the path us under water. Very uncomfortable. It's about a 30 min hike each way to a grey sand beach, no frills. Much better options closer to town or north that don't intrude on one of the last native areas. I love hikes and adventure, but leave it to them, it's clear that's what is dedired and feel we should respect that.

One of Hawaii Island's most beautiful black sand beaches! The first thing you need to know is that there are no facilities of any kind at this beach. Be sure to take plenty of drinking water and anything else you think you might need. Visitors to Hawaii always say they want to see the real Hawaii well this is it. Respect the locals and their rules. I don't recommend visiting on a weekend or any major holidays because it will be crowded with local families enjoying their time off. I went on a week day and the beach was nearly deserted. Perfect. Stay on the marked trail leading to the beach. There are many hand painted signs marking private areas along the way so be sure to respect boundaries. But most of all if you encounter anyone along the way show some aloha smile and say hello. Be sure to take any trash out with you as well. The water is beautiful but be sure to check the tide because the water can be a little rough. Wear hiking shoes for the trail and bring rubber slippers for the beach because black sand gets very hot in the sun.
