This is a surreal experience. It's a must see while on the Big Island. You might even see a giant sea turtle. Best beach ever.
black sand and green sea turtles.
If you're lucky, you'll see some turtles. If you're not lucky, you still get to experience black sand that is smoother than riding a 40 ft wave. Be careful though: the sun gets super hot midday
Beautiful and try the coffee.
Turtles! Black sand looks dirty but is actually very clean.
There's ALWAYS turtles everywhere
Be sure to visit the sunbathing turtles!
The word black in the name of this beach should be changed to something more culturally sensitive I like charred lava granules or something that exemplifies the heritage and struggle of the sands past
This may not be the best beach for swimming, but it's incredible to see an all-black sand beach! Make sure you scoop some up and play with it; your hands stay clean! I kept expecting dirty hands.
Beautiful. A little gritty/pebbly for a swim spot though.
Soo pretty! Bring water shoes, because the sand is pretty coarse. There are lots of volcanic rocks to hike around on which is really fun!
Great spot for a picnic lunch amid unique scenery.
People watching as well as the sea turtles.
Cute snack bar with unique souvenirs.
Keep your eyes peeled for the turtles that frequent the beach but keep your distance.
Turtles the size of the ninja turtles just chilling on the sand
Best black sand beach ever and love seeing turtles
look for the honus sunning themselves in the surf
Great place to observe turtles. The water's tad chilly to swim and there're ants so keep an eye on your food.
The black sand is beautiful!
Nice place to see!
Really black sand!
Too many stones. Really hard to swim especially if you don't want the stones to hurt you.
Love the Beach here !!!
Best basaltic black sand beach on the island.
Make sure you walk around and look by the rocks for turtles
Great spot to view sea turtles :)
Give the sea turtles their space, don't steal the sand, and take plenty of photos. Those are the rules. Learn 'em, know 'em, live 'em...
Always have a jacket with you on this island. You never know when it is going to get cool.
Look for the turtles
Great place to see tons of sea turtles!! Just please be sure to leave these beautiful creatures alone! : )
Please STAY AWAY FROM TURTLES! 18 feet! Dont touch! Is not hard to do ppl!
I like turtles
If u r hungry go to green sand cafe in punaluu
Snorkel out a bit and play with the sea turtles.
Turtles are often seen here resting on the warm beach heads. Be sure to keep at least 18 feet from them.
Look for the sea turtles on the beach. But don't get to close.
Water is a little cold. Good turtle viewing
