Wonderful beach walk to a beautiful cove. There are tide pools all along the way and the scenery is stunning. There were sea turtles in the water and sunning on the beach. Be sure to wear something more than flip-flops and bring water.

You have to be willing to do some walking either way you come into this protected Cove area. We chose to go into the parking lot and walk down the Lava Beach encountering several Turtles on the way. We also looked at the other entrance off of mile marker 81 which seems to be a straighter shot but it was hard to tell if there was a clear path to walk on. Once you reach the Cove there are multiple Turtles swimming in under the wooden bridge to a small protected area. We also swim and viewed other Turtles sunning themselves on the Black Sand Island

Wear shoes with good traction and bring water if you plan to hike over to the lagoon. The water was very murky and snorkeling was poor while we were there. If you decide to try snorkeling be mindful of the rocks and shore breaks in the lagoon.

We parked near one of the suggested mile markers which took us down an unpaved road for beach access. We did have to walk a little ways past some camp areas to get to the black sand beach. Once there it was pretty private which we liked. It was a nice spot to swim and relax. I would recommend water shoes tho as it was pretty rocky and there was lava rock in the water which was sharp.

I have sent an updated location info to TA as the current map position is wrong. There is a rocky access road from hwy 19 north of Hualalei and south of Waikoloa. Parking is close to the beach, but you have to walk more than a mile to Kiholo Bay along the beach. Wear sturdy shoes as the last part is over young lava flows. Although water visibility isn’t great as sea and fresh water mix here, you want to bring snorkel gear to swim with turtles. They are abundant here, I never saw less than ten whenever visiting.
