We walked to this beach from Kekaha Kai Beach Park. We parked just off the "road" and walked across a lava path until we got to the first beach. Then walked through the sand past the Magoon house, tripped through an a'a lava field, slogged through more sand...and found paradise.
There were a couple of spray painted notices on the lava stating that it was a nude beach (everyone we saw had bathing suits). There were also several official looking posted signs that stated it was a private beach owned by Kamehameha schools though no one seemed to pay any attention to them.
We must be slow, because it took us 40 minutes to reach the beach, which was about twice as long as we had heard. We were extra careful on the lava (we were certain that if we fell, the resulting injury would require stitches), but we passed other people, so I know we weren't the slowest. Our group ranged in age from 10 to 40.
There were very few people on the beach and plenty of room for everyone. The surf was high the day we were there and it wasn't good for swimming, but great for body surfing. The sand was soft and fine. There were a few large rock formations, but nothing that impeded beach play. The sand near the dunes on the way into the beach had some thorns and burrs, but they didn't make it on to the beach. Towards the north end, there were a few people with vehicles parked, so I'm sure there's another way in, but most everyone walked in from Kekaha Kai beach. There was shade and even picnic tables on the north end. There are not any bathrooms, and no drinking water available, be prepared to take whatever you will need.
Most of the other people left in early afternoon and we had the beach to ourselves for at least an hour. Walking back sandy, damp, and salty wasn't fun, but we would go back to the beach again. Be sure to leave the beach before sunset, you don't want to have to find your way across that a'a lava in the dark. Wear good sandals or shoes. We had hiking sandals with toe protection, and we were glad.
