Swam with spinner dolphins, sea turtles, spotted moray eels, blue box puffer fish, and an abundance of tropical fish. Best snorkeling we found on the big island and one of the best beaches. Easy parking and not over crowded with tourists. Enjoyed this much more than Two Step beach.

This is a cute little beach. Felt like a local family beach, not a tourist beach, which I liked. (There's a campground just back from the beach that looked crowded yet civilized, in a hippie-camper community sort of way.) Lots of kids frolicking in the surf, which was maybe three feet while we were there. Planned to spend a couple hours, wound up spending four hours, so it exceeded our expectations. Decent boogie boarding, but crowded in the waves at the beach. North side of the beach had more rocks in the surf, and therefore fewer boarders. Snorkeling visibility was ok, once you got out past the surf, but not many fish to see. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a slightly funky beach experience: reminded me a bit of Santa Cruz, CA.

A lot to see i.e. campers, nudist, people that actually live there. Its a long windy road to get down there and is really only one way but i nice little place usually only locals know about

Loved going to hó Ókena when I lived there, it was a nice beautiful, calm could see the beautiful yellow fish rolling in the surf, just tumbling around. Also, had dolphins circle me while I was just floating was awesome! <3

Decent black sand beach. Quaint size and not too busy. Some locals and some tourists. Camp site at one end. If you are staying close and don't want to drive to the nice beaches in the North, then worth a day.
