  • You have to be willing to do some walking either way you come into this protected Cove area. We chose to go into the parking lot and walk down the Lava Beach encountering several Turtles on the way...  more »

  • Gorgeous coastline and an easy walk to the Queen's Bath from the Kiholo Bay parking lot (even if you have sandals on). Respect the private property along the route to get here, easiest way is to park at the parking lot and walk along the shore. If you're not one for hiking or you're short on time, I'd recommend just walking up to the Queen's Bath, as while the bay is nice, the publicly accessible part not too different from what you can seeing coming out from the parking lot to the shore.
  • A small trek to get to the Bay Area but totally worth it. WEAR SHOES! You’re walking on rocks to get to the Bay. Once you get to the lava rocks keep going and there are some nice shady sand areas to relax. It’s a low key spot and hardly anyone was there when we went around 4pm and we stayed a couple of hours. Snorkeling isn’t great because the water is a little foggy, but kind or worth trying because we saw so many sea turtles, puffer fish, huge blue tang etc. Great swimming spot and sea turtles are everywhere!
