off Highway 19, North WestHawaii

There are six separate accesses to this stretch of beach. There isn't much sand here but the tidepools and extensive reef are remarkable. During low tide, small pools dot the entire coastline. These pools are filled with small sealife and make excellent areas to explore. Offshore the reef is home to a wide variety of fish. The outer edges of the reef are the most interesting, but use extreme caution and monitor ocean conditions carefully before entering the water.
