Beautiful sacred place. This says it all. Take your time here. Sit and be quiet. Say your prayers to the ancestors and guardians of this sacred land. Ask permission and give respect. This place is truly amazing... approach with reverence and take the time to receive the gifts which are given in return.

Beautiful solitude in the times of Covid. Had this beach to myself and no rain, so I had some nice snorkeling on either end of the cove. Clean beach, clear water, and plenty of parking.

Absolutely incredible!! It's a can't miss stop. The drive in from Hana Highway is bumpy but well worth it. Go check out the massive waves at the unique black sand beach... WARNING... the waves will occasionally cover the entire sand part of the beach, so be careful where you store your towels, bags, and shoes. Go up top and see the impressive blow hole... be careful of where you choose to stand or you will get drenched. Then continue passed the blow hole and hike, yes hike, a gorgeous short trail that embodies what you think of when you think about Hawaii... lush greens and bright flowers against lava rock and ocean waves. Upon returning to the beach, don't miss the sea arch and the walk-in cave off to the right, directly on the beach.

If you are looking for evidence that you are on a volcanic island then this is the park for you! The sand is black and there is an amazing lava tube leading right to the water. There is nothing more Hawaiian (from a geological POV) than this place!

On the Road to Hana, this was the farthest we went. We had packed some food for a lunch and once we found a parking spot (super difficult), we snagged an empty picnic table and relaxed. We followed the path down to the black beach, which was small but interesting! We saw 2-3 families spread out on the beach but any more than that, it would be too crowded, considering the tide and people walking through. We took some pictures and videos on the beach then moved further along, hiking up a path. Since I was pregnant, it got to the point where the hike was too rocky and strenuous for me but my husband went further on. Nothing spectacular but some nice views! There's a sorta 2nd black sand beach further along but it's has large rocks so you're not going to hang out there.
