This Black Sand Beach is the most beautiful in the world! There are frequent visits from sunbathing sea turtles! Be sure to let them enjoy their natural habitat while you catch some rays and Instagram photos!
Punalu’u is the closest beach to Volcano. Not your typical white, sandy Hawai’i beach, It’s something quite unique and beautiful.
Beautiful black sand beach with sea turtles and a lagoon. A lovely place to spend the afternoon. Visit Punalu'u Bakery for malasadas while you are in town.
“This is a very nice beach that we usually have all to ourselves. It is about a 15 minute walk through the rainforest to get to it. The waves are excellent for people of all ages and the boogie boarding is decent. Very nice place.”
