This was a beautiful hike. We only ran into a few people on the trail. If you want a secluded private hike this is for you. the trail was easy. We saw lots of turtles and goats. the views were just beautiful.

This trail is hot and dry with little refuge from the sun, but well worth the journey. We have not ventured south once at the beach, but have explored the north side several times. Take your time and stop to watch the activity in and out of the man-made channel where the turtles come and go to rest in the ponds. Follow the path through the lava to get to the brilliant blue water in the lagoon. Take a dip in the shallow beach area, but do not disturb the turtles and leave no trace- pack out what you’ve packed in. This is a pristine environment which needs to be kept the way it is.
Can be done in flip flops but I recommend a good runner, at least until you get to the beach.

Didn’t walk all the way down the coast, but loved the coast at the end of this “hike”. Flat and easy to find, the beach was nice and the best part... not crowded! We walked down a quarter mile and found a lovely spot to hang a hammock. Really nice that almost no one was there. Saw a sea turtle chilling on the sand, mongooses, and a lot of goats.

Easy trail to beautiful bay to the north. Southern part of the trail along the beach and lava rocks leads to Queens Bath and secluded black sand beaches.

Hike into ocean was easy. Once at ocean views a re spectacular. Turn right and head to lagoon. Stunning views. Depth up to chest for safe swimming and relax. Lots of Honu too. Worth it.
