“Good snorkeling spot”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Richardson beach is composed of coves with rocks and black sands. Good for snorkeling and swimming. The sea was calm. A nice spot for older children to play in the water as well. Shower/changing facility available. Parking is a little tight.

“Honu and more!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We saw the largest sea turtle ever here. This is a very easy beach to snorkel. Easy to park, easy to walk in this calm protected cove. There was a lifeguard on duty as well. We were driving around the island from Kona and this was a perfect stop.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Richardson's Beach is a small black sand beach that I struggle to call a beach. Its mostly a local hangout. If you want a nice swimming beach with white sand drive over to the other side of the island and visit Hapuuna Beach State Park - now that is a beach!
