Not a huge park, but a nice little hike down to a beautiful beach. Great place to relax for the afternoon, or just take a little hike and get some history.
Clean bathrooms.

We parked at the marina end and followed the well marked path to the beach. There were only eight people including us on the beach most of the afternoon. We saw six or eight turtles eating and basking in the sun. The only challenge was we did not see any water or shower facilities to rinse off after swimming. Otherwise, was a nice afternoon!

There are 4 parks operated by the National Park Service on the Big Island. You can easily see them all in one trip. Two have park entrance fees and two do not. Active military can get a free annual pass good for ALL National Parks. These four were all different, all beautiful and all educational.

Don't be fooled by the appearance. Start your walk by viewing the petroglyphs - lots of history! Then an easy walk down to the beach where you are more than likely to see turtles at the shoreline. Look for the 2 ponds - the first one is relatively easy to get to. The second one is quite a walk along the beach.

Then walk to the other end and find yourself in a beautiful peaceful beach cove surrounded by historic artefacts. The swimming area is rocky at the start but persevere because there is lovely soft sand further in.

A Gem!

Loved it here as well as the history, but well worth seeing the turtles laying on the beach. Got some great pictures and the drive was fun on the way here.
