Great place to see turtles
Black-sand is different
Very scenic location
Just to the south is Panaluu Beach Park. It is a flat grassy area with several small trees near the beach.. From several vantage points you will be amazed at the crashing surf.
In back of the beach is a duck pond. It is very relaxing to stand on the bridge and watch the ducks swimming around the pond. Many "lucky" ducks migrate and spend their winters in Hawaii.
If you have never seen a black sand beach before then this will take some getting used to.
It is a pretty beach lined with coconut palms.
It is not really a good place to swim because of the strong undertow.
At the beach park you will find rest rooms, showers, picnic pavillions, and camping.
You will need a permit if you plan to camp. The permits are obtainable online, by mail, or in person.
