- Punalu'u Beach Park is best known for it's black sand beach. The park lies on the southeastern coast of the Big Island and is exposed to open ocean and rough seas. Swimming should be attempted only on very calm days. A strong rip current flows offshore. Swimming is least treacherous at the northern end of the beach. Snorkeling can be attempted from the same area of the beach, but be cautious. This is a good site for fishing.
The park encompasses the black sand beach and a grassy area slightly higher than the beach. Camping is permitted in this grassy area. The coast immediately fronting the camping area is rocky with a few palm trees creating a bit of shade.
Follow Highway 11 southward then eastward past Honuapo to the beach park (approximately 67 miles).
