WORTH IT: Yes. Something I’ve never seen before! Black sand beach..only in Hawaii! Waves were strong Sept 28th, 2019 when we went. Can get crowded here....More
This was one of our stops during our road trip to Hana. We did not swim at the beach because of lack of time. Plus trekking down to the beach is a bit of a workout (for a family with a toddler and 2 super...More
The park itself was nice and well maintained, with facilities including restrooms, picnic area, and beach shower. This makes for a good rest stop along the road to Hana.
The black sand beach was nice to see for the novelty of it. The water is...More
There are bathrooms, and an easy path down to the beach. The waves are rough but it is a nice beach. Maybe I'm a little over protective, but if a wave can knock me down, I won't let my kids go in past their knees.
We made the very long drive here from our hotel in West Maui only to find it blocked by a group of people holding signs saying "locals only". There were two uniformed officers standing to the side just letting this happen. This was very disappointing....More
The views, the water, black sand beach & lava tube which opens out to the water were just fantastic. The blow hole wasn't doing much the day we were there but that's ok. The beach was busy, but was expected. A must stop, even if...More

Perhaps we caught it on a bad day, but after spending two enjoyable and peaceful days in Hana, we found this park to be overcrowded and kind of stressful. Due to the amount of people at the park, and the fact that the beach itself...More

We did the whole Road to Hana, starting in Kaanapali and took even the back part to return back to Kaanapali. we left at 6:30am and did not get back until after dinner. We took our time and stopped pretty well at every waterfall, the Black Beach, even into a small village to see a very, very old church. It is a full day of sightseeing. The road itself on the way to Hana is not bad at all, yes lots of one lane ,bridges, lots of switch backs, but all easy to maneuver. beside you can't even drive over 25 miles an hour. But slow is good. Going early keeps traffic behind you. We were in a rental vehicle and they allowed us to use it on the Road to Hana.
Taking the back road instead of doubling back....was not good for about 10-15 miles...the rest was good highway driving and beautiful ocean views. It was actually the only time I go nervous the whole day was on the one stretch of road of the back side!
