    One of the most well-known myths in Hawaii says that any visitor who takes rock or sand away from the Hawaii islands will suffer bad luck until the native Hawaiian elements are returned.

    Very cool beach. Black sand. Lava rocks. Bit of hiking. On a sunny day, worth the ride!

    It is beautiful, but it's more of a black rock beach. It is still worth going. The water is so clear and clean. There are also lave tubes too.

    My sisters and I had a lunch in the rain at the picnic benches before exploring. What a cool day!

    How often do you get to see a black sand beach? Go here if you're in the area. It's magical but can get crowded. The caves are decent but not worth the effort.

    Come to see the tourists pack in. Just don't stay long. You may needs shies the "sand" is really small rocks.

    This was for me the only enjoyable stop on our hana drive. If you are in the area it's definitely worth to stop for a while.

    Beautiful exotic looking beach. Worth the diversion from the road to Hana. There are a couple caves to swim at too. I believe this is the only black sand beach on the Island.

    Awesome place to take the kids. The rocks are a little rough so reef walkers are a good idea

    On a day trip to Hana you should definitively stop at this black sand beach. Pretty amazing sight and good place to take a break from the drive.
