The view from above is spectacular! It's a great place to watch the waves and look up and down the coast. If you're lucky you'll be able to see the turtles resting on the beach. The beach is just a little further up the highway...More

I agree Otha Tehran hate hiss i a good start or finish to a Hana road trip. Clean place but we didn't get to see turtles here. This seems worth coming to on its own and not just as a stop.

Came to see Sea Turtles and that's what we saw - probably about 25 of them around 5pm - they're awesome! The beach looked great too - perhaps come and it enjoy it at a later date.

Neat overlook where turtles congregated on the beach. Definitely worth stopping and taking a look before Hana.

We stopped by the park on a drive through Paia and were so glad we did. It was an early Sunday afternoon and the only people on the beach appeared to be local families just chilling out on the beach. We loved it so much...More
