We rented a 4wd Jeep so we gussied up the nerve and made the turn off the road in between mile marker 88 & 89. The road was rough but I’d do it again in a heart beat. The beach is worth the white knuckled...More
I actually sailed here and anchored off the beach. The water was immaculately clean and clear! White sand beach, aqua-colored water, and Spinner Dolphins were jumping around for about an hour. The swell can definitely come up here, making all water activities difficult except body...More
Maps say 20 minuets walk from parking are:it was less over moonscape like old lava field. Shade trees good sand several ocean entry points and 50 yards off shore lots of fish in blue coral. Lots of turtles on beach and in the water
So this place is a little off the beaten path but so worth it. Absolutely gorgeous views. The sea turtles roam around the rocks, it's amazing. We would fill our cooler with food and beverage and stay out there all day. It's a little bit...More
This is my absolute favorite beach on the Big Island. It's worth the drive over rough lava fields to the nearly private beach. If you want to make the trek further down to Maks you can, but why bother, when you can sit under the...More
Makalawena is a tough place to get to, requiring a local guide and bypassing several 'Beach Closed' signs. It is well worth it - you'll have one of the worlds most pristine beaches to yourself typically.

Aloha. The Green Sand Beach is located on the south tip of the Big Island. To access it, you take Hwy 11 South to South Point Road. About 10 miles down the road forks. The Green Sand Beach is to the LEFT at the fork, small sign points the way. Also, you need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get to the beach itself - would not recommend driving or walking yourselff!. There are usually a group of Hawaiians in the parking area take the ride from them it's well worth the money you won't spend time getting lost! The surf is a bit rough on the beach - you have to walk down a cliff and back up it too but they will pick up up and deliver you to the point to walk down. It's beautiful worth the trip.
