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.
Take Highway 19 north from Kona. Turn left onto Puako Road before Mile Marker #70. Public accesses are located by telephone poles #106, 110, 115, 120, 127 and 137.
