  • A great hike along the shore, far from hotels and roads. We saw dolphins in the water and goats on the lava.

  • Big beach is big. The waves are big. If you don't know what you're doing don't go in the water. Keep and eye or better yet stay right with your kids. People can easily get hurt in surf like this beach has. Lots of sandy beach for playing in the sand relaxing or just people watching. This beach does have lifeguards so respect them and do what they say. They are there to keep everyone safe: don't make their job harder by not respecting the power of the ocean at this beach. Barbra the parking attendant is super kind and helpful.
  • Amazing beach. Lots of space, even when it was busy. The waves here get really big. Please be aware of your surroundings when here. I definitely did not and a wave took me down and I tumbled onto the beach. Could have seriously hurt myself. The lifeguards also say to be careful.
