Scenic drivingGreat!

One of my favorite spots on the Road to Hana! There’s a cool lava tube you can walk through and multiple spots that overlook the ocean. The black sands absolutely beautiful in contrast to the bright lime green foliage! You also get a great view of the ocean. We sat on the beach drinking from coconuts that we bought from a nearby fruit truck talk about an awesome ending to our day!

Sublime. Not much of a hike, but there is a campground and the beach is truly one of a kind.

It gives a great view of the cliffs on the other side, and the beach. Worth the 0.7 miles

Beautiful black sand beach and overlook with blow hole. A neat little cave. Fairly busy when we were here though

Ahhh the road to Hana! Please be courteous and yield accordingly. Black sands beach is absolutely gorgeous and worth the drive, when we went it was rough sea and raining pretty hard, we still swam in the ocean and made for a great time!

Beautiful. But pretty sure hiking it is considered trespassing. I could be wrong on that. Camped here once and it was awesome. Nice little cove area protected by small walk wall where lobster like to hang out at.
