Highway 19, North West
Hawaii

This uncrowded beach is easily accessed via a 1 1/2 mile long rugged semipaved road that winds through an old lava fields. There are two beaches located here perfect for swimming and limited water sports. Many freshwater springs bubble up through the sand and sometimes form small pools.

Legend states that in 1801 the goddess Pele came to the village that once was built around this bay. Pele presented herself as an old, hungry woman. The village chief refused to give her any food and sent her away. A kind villager, however, offered her something to eat. She blessed his kindness. That night she sent the firey fury of her volcano to destroy all of the village.... except for the house of the generous villager! Many such tales are told throughout the islands - so always be kind to others, you never know when Pele may be walking the earth.
