  • Unfortunately the weather was slightly overcast with clouds and periodic rain showers that prevented the jaw dropping sunny views of the island and in particular this black sand beach, however, I still felt the amazing Big Island experience.

I highly recommend visitors and travelers to come visit this beach.
  • The sand is brown, really. Still it is hot to the point of melting my sandals. Do not plan to spend too much time here. The beach is steep and the ocean seems to be a bit more forceful as it hits the steep part of the incline. The cliffs are cool to look at. Maui is visible from the bottom.
