Spectacular views, with waves rushing into the rocky shore. Very beautiful. You will end up spending some time here to really gather it all in.

We stopped on our way to Hana, excited to see the black sand beach and the freshwater caves. The coastline at this park is beautiful and definitely worth a stop all on its own. The black sand beach was beautiful but the actual sand section...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.
