Punaluʻu Beach Park
Big Island of Hawaii
Located off of Highway 11 near the 56 mile marker, about 20 minutes driving time from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, you'll come to a turnoff for Punaluʻu Black Sand Beach.
This is the most easy accessible black sand beach on the island. It is also a home to many endangered green sea turtles. There is an excellent chance that you will find one lying in the sun on the beach.
There is excellent swimming and snorkeling. The beach has a picnic area, pavilion, restrooms and showers.
