Great view from this lookout. There is a trail down to the beach here. Very steep but worth the hike. It can be wet and muddy which makes it slippery so be careful. This is not an easy hike so not really good for small children.

This black sand beach is the most accessible of all the black sand beaches on the island. This beach is a turtle sanctuary so you will definitely see turtles sunning themselves on the beach here and dozens in the water eating. Please stay at least 20 feet away and follow all signs and instructions. To break the rules or touch turtles is a crime and Hawai'i is very strict about protecting these native creatures.

This book store is one of the best on the island if you are looking for arts and culture references. We recommend reading Hawaii by James Michener or for a more local contemporary read get yourself a copy of Shark Dialogues by Kiana Davenport. Both books are historical fiction but very accurate.

If you're interested in the history of the Mai Tai then this is the place for you. Mai Tai flights available including the original from back in the day! Food is average but the view is stunning. Covered bar so this place is good in the rain. Excellent live entertainment from famous locals on Thursday nights.
