I loved this place! I hiked down the beach from the mile marker 81 parking lot. Whether you take a left or right along the beach, the views are stunning. Taking a right along the beach and walking about a mile along the shoreline brings...More
The drive in is on gravel roads, and the coastline is mostly rocky with tidal pools. A lot of trees line the coast so it's easy to find shade here. There's relatively few people but sea turtle viewing is still very much possible.
We went in hopes of seeing green sea turtles but there were none to be found. We arrived fairly early in the morning and had the beach to ourselves with the exception of the people camping near the beach. Lots of goats running around which...More
This place is simply georgeous and so unique. It’s off the beaten path and lots of locals hang out here. I was able to see Turtles resting on the beach. The water was so clear and there was good visibility while snorkeling. I loved it...More
We loved this place. We were told about it by some locals. It's not well signed at all so we drove by it many times without realizing it was there. We snorkeled and watched a fantastic sunset here. We had the beach area mostly to...More
We found places to snorkel, swim, wade, hike, and rest. The turtles were resting too. Be careful on the trail that has some stealth rocks buried in the path that I happened to trip, stub my toe, and fall on. We wanted to go back...More

The trail starts at the guard rail. Walk towards guard rail and you’ll see trail. Go down trail and enjoy. When you get to ocean turn right and walk along beach trail about 15 to 20 min. Go over rocks and leave. Bring water. Wear sneakers. Not hard trail but keep going past houses - you’ll see trail over rocks well worn and make sure to cross small bridge and then you’re almost there. Look down when on small bridge as we saw large turtle ‘grandpa’ turtle playing in that area. Enjoy. We had entire bay to ourselves all day ! Wear wetsuit top or rash guard as there were small areas of fresh water cold spots. Bring camera and swim with turtles but remember not to touch them!

The trailhead is just south of the 81 mile marker in the ocean side of the highway. Parking is basically by the side of the road. If you saw the sign about the lava tubes, you were in the right place. I believe the trail goes off to the left from the parking lot before it turns toward the sea. I would recommend downloading the All Trails app as it’s great for helping you find and follow the trails in Hawaii and it’s free. Aloha!
