People tend to check in during these times:
Arrive at the park early; the afternoon sun can be brutal, as there is little shade. The self-guided tour takes about an hour. Use caution when exploring by the water, lava rock can be slippery.
Take the self guided tour learn about early native Hawaiian history and culture. The nearby beach/rock area called Two Step has some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island.
Great park to learn about early native Hawai'ian history and culture. The nearby beach/rock area called Two Step has some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island.
Best off shore snorkeling down south... Its amazing! Try to find the spelling of ALOHA with rocks under the water out to the right side of bay.
There's a fantastic picnic area you can drive to on the south end of the park. Great for sunsets :)
Favorite place in the big island. Come near sunset, (we came around 5:30 in mid-September).
This is a nice spot. But beware in Warm weather it is extremely hot with all the black lava rocks
Interesting historical place. Want to go back and check out the snorkeling that comes highly recommended.
Awesome snorkeling right next to the historic site. Plenty of sea turtles :)
Entry fee is good at all National Parks for seven days. Make sure to keep your receipt.
If you snorkel, go to Two Step a 5 min walk away. Wear booties as lava rocks are hot and entry / exit is slippery.
Show up shortly after gate opens for free entry (before 8 probably). Gate open 7am-7pm.
Careful not to step on sea urchins! Enter by the two step and jump right in to see nice colorful reef! No luck with dolphins that morning :(
Stunning place! There are sometimes turtles in the surf here so keep an eye out.
Beautiful snorkling spot! Beginners, be aware that the waves can get intense along the rocky coast.
Come early to beat the crowds and have the best weather. Storms often move in by the afternoon.
Very interesting cultural site that's well worth exploring after a morning snorkel at Two Step.
Paid $5 to get in because we didn't realize there was a beach next door. Live and learn
Hawaii ancient sacred sites. Self guided tour. Please respect the site.
Very interesting historical and spiritual spot. Beautiful!
Best snorkeling I've ever seen and that's saying a lot.
It's an ancient historical city of refuge...
Tiki's galore! Gotta love those tiki's.
Really lovely place.
The place was quite hot. Wear shorts and sandals.
$5 for day use. #bigisle2012
I'd like to buy a vowel, Pat.
Lovely, peaceful spot.
Take the self guided tour
Great swimming beach
