The hike was easy with many light rock scrambling. Bring bug spray if you end up here late in the late afternoon. The hike was totally worth it and the view was awesome.

Pass the tourist on the beach and at the blow hole. Keep going- chartreuse sea plants, black volcanic rock and the blue ocean awaits. Keep going on the trail- it breathtaking. And you'll probably be ALONE. We were out there alone and it was wondrous- the wind, the sun, waves, birds. Enjoy this.

Not much of a hike but beautiful scenery with black sand beach, blowhole, water splashing against lava coast. Worth the trip but not a workout, if that's what you're looking for.

Drove the Hana highway to Hana town and went to this park back in 92'. The black sand beach is unreal. Don't get to see that many places. There was a blow hole out on the lava rocks here too. I could have watched the waves crash against the rocks here all day. They were really rolling into this bay the day we were there. Wild!!

Love this park. Trails (paved walkways and stairs) are very very easy. The spring is fun to jump into but very cold. If you go into the back of the left cave in spring you use to be able to climb it (in the dark) and go through hole to surface. Fun but kinda sketchy.

Beautiful scenery! Easy trail with the right footwear. Go past the black sand beach and over the lava rocks for amazing views and less people!

Definitely take the hike beyond the black sand beach. The majority of tourists don't go beyond the beach and the views are wonderful. The bright green plants on the black rocks will make you feel like you are on the set of a 1970s sci fi tv program.

Beautiful state park with some very easy to find fresh water caves. If you have time to stop on the way back from Hana it's worth it, but not a must see.

Very quick hike to a set of fresh water caves. The trail is slick, but well maintained. This is a very popular attraction, but is not easily accessible for strollers and young ones, so the crowd is older and a little rowdy. One of the fresh water caves is a popular spot for diving into the water.
