Once you park, ($15 parking) you just wait for the sunset at the crater, and then you can watch the lava change colors once the sun sets.

Great place to snorkel even though on day we went the swell was up and made it a bit difficult a bit hard to find but worth it has a park next to it where you can spend day relaxing.
This is one of Hawaii’s state-managed parks/beaches, and as such offers nice restrooms, outdoor showers, and good parking.

It is a bit of a hike in to it, (past the state park beach which is a super easy walk to) half of the hike is an easy walk, half is over rough, sharp lava.
You must take the direction of the Kekaha Kai state park (highway 19, between miles marker 90-91) in first (a second road exists to join by the North this beach between miles 88-89 but adventure in 4WD car in pers...

Now I've got to explore other businesses with tours in the Natural Energy Laboratory business park: the abalone farm, the Maine lobster farm, and maybe others.
Must visit for kids and adults who like nature

Overall a highly recommended park especially if you are into snorkeling as the waters are generally calm and visibility is excellent.
Life guards on duty everyday, mobile truck with rentals: snorkel gear, beach chairs, life vests, etc. on site and volunteers on hand to answer any questions about the park and sea life.

The park is absolutely beautiful, with striking pahoehoe lava flows, well-preserved petroglyphs and structures, a gorgeous salt-and-pepper beach, and green sea turtles basking out for everyone to see.
Saw turtle, breathtaking views and one of the most amazing historic parks, with history that is fascinating.

You park at the top and walk down a long pathway giving you the chance to view the flora and trees.
Arriving at the car park, you leave your entry fee in the honesty box and start a descent down the hill.

Fantastic way to spend a day on the big island ...... once you find the turn off (near the scenic view stop), and head down the unsealed road to park near the water, its about a 2-3 km walk to the actual lagoon pa...
You can park south of the scenic point and walk straight across the lava rock and right to the bay area or you can drive 30 seconds passed the scenic point and drive down the gravel road that states you are in the...

If you go to the small state park next to the marina, bring your camera, kick off your slippa's and stroll down the extremely quiet shoreline and enjoy the Aloha spirit all around you.
If you park at the end of the harbor parking lot you can walk through a "gate" and out to the little beach next to the harbor.
