Punalu'u beach is the most famous black sand beach of Hawaii. It is easily accessible and great for swimming, seeing turtles, and snorkeling.
Visit a unique, black sand beach on the south side of the Big Island. I can almost guarantee you will see sea turtles!
Awesome place to catch the Honu(sea turtle) basking in the sun. Picnic, swim or snorkel the blue lava rocks and be amazed at all the beautiful marine life.
I love to watch the turtles basking and of course it’s rare black sand .
This beach is located South of the island. Turtles swim out to rest mornings, afternoons and evenings. Punaluu Beach is only a 35 minute drive from the Lauhala Drive Spacious Suite property.
