Beautiful stop to see black sand beach!!! Even if you just need a potty break, or a driving break, you need to stop to see this gem!!! Wear sturdier footwear if you plan to walk on the beach as it is rocky with the sand...More

Me and my nephew have been there many times so this time we spent the time taking pictures. The black sand and the cave were our main objects.

Always seem to find this a perfect stop with restrooms to use. The place needs better cleaning and always smells inside.

If you can make it here early I'd highly recommend it. Definitely some of the most beautiful scenery of our entire vacation, but we were literally tripping over people just to get around. Also, don't mess around with the blow hole. Seriously. When we were...More

This beach among many others on the island of Maui is beautiful! Although it's more of a scenic beach it's relaxing and a good spot for photo ops.

This was by far our favourite spot on our journey to Hana. The black sand beach was gorgeous and such a welcoming swim on a hot and humid day. The caves are a must do and were probably our children's favourite part, they loved the...More

I'm sorry I don't know but it is a state park so I'm sure there's a government site that can give you that info.

Definitely make the stop at this park. My husband and I went in July for our honeymoon and we really enjoyed it. I would say it is #3 on my list. Make sure you venture into the caves. Our top other things to do would be a... More
