Kiholo Bay reviews
A couple of local friends took me on a hike in this area. It was a rainy day but I think that made it even better as we only saw a couple of people. We did see lots of crabs and a few sea turtles.

Across the lava fields to a beautiful bay with lots of sea turtles. It is a gorgeous slice of paradise.

We loved this spot. The maps will tell you to turn right at the bottom but it's a gated service road. Go down just a tiny bit more and there's limited parking with a turn around. Definitely recommend water shoes for this walk. Especially if you want to go in the water. About 2-3 min into your walk if you look to your right you'll see a tiny sign hanging in the tree. There is a fresh water pool, although small and cold, it was refreshing and really neat. Keep walking along the shoreline and you're 100% sure to see sea turtles right up close, some are on the beach too. Keep your distay, you're in their home. The walk to the actual bay is about 1.7m but totally worth it and and easy "hike". Good calf workout lol. When you get to the bay if you go over towards the far side a bit more it gets a bit deeper and more black sand, pebble area. 10/10 explore this area/bay! Please leave it as you found it. That is what keeps these places so beautiful and "untouched".
A bit of an out of the way nature spot along the north coast, barely anything letting you know this place exists. But we heard there were sea turtles to be witnessed and made the detour. And lo and behold there were turtles, easily about ten hanging out and heading back out to sea in the late afternoon. Not really a spot to swim but definitely a cool place to spend an hour or two.
