  • Great beach with calm swimming pools - well kept grounds and an old bridge. Lots of seating under trees over looking the water. Most people just fly right by headed to Punalu’u- but it is definitely.....  more »
  • This is a nice beach also, but then again, we haven't found a beach on the Island that wasn't breathtaking. There are restrooms here and covered picnic tables.  more »
  • Surf was up and it was so beautiful. The park was very nice, with the only negative being some slobs had broken beer bottles. The park had clean restrooms and multiple picnic tables. Overall a great place to visit. One note: if coming from Kona expect a very sharp right turn into the park.
  • I was here around 2017 or 2018. Out of every single camping beach on the Big Island, this is the most dangerous one, and the only one I was literally chased out of by ice users. The pros are that the facilities are good- the showers work and there are functional power outlets in the pavilions. Day use was somewhat safe but people were selling drugs in the lot. I was the only one there over night and an angry truck circled in and out of the parking lot over and over again, making it clear to me it was their territory. It would leave for awhile then come back and shine it's lights on me and circle around me. I am the territorial type and held my ground, but I could tell the next time they came to circle around something was going down. As I drove away the angry truck returned ready to do their robbing only to find me departing. Separately there is no swimming here, the waves are far too rough and the rocks are far too sharp. This is a good viewing area for outer space activity.
