We really enjoyed our visit to this small park more than most of the other parks along this road. It's quiet and serene. Saw turtles too in the bay to the left of the parking lot.

We visited here on a Friday afternoon. When we got out of the car and walked to the park, it was so tranquil. As if you were disrobing, step by step, until you were totally at ease and all the hustle and bustle of the...More

Itb is just adjacent to Richardson's beach and a popular place for snorkeling as it is protected from the surf and ocean swell. It is a nice park to walk with great views.

Went here twice for shore dives. Interesting ingress/egress over the lava rocks and good underwater sights. Be sure you're balanced with your gear, though, and watch those surf conditions. The surge is tricky -- especially at high tide. Cool dive spot.

I almost hate to share. I love this place. Even though you are not he east side of the island, you can watch the sun set over Mauna Kea. You can swim with sea turtles and flying fish. Bring a picnic or barbecue and experience...More

A protected area shielded from the surf that is crystal clear and perfect for young ones to swim. Parking can be challenging. Places to picnic and grill. Nice park with beautiful views!

Great spot to spend the day during the week when school is in. Cook out and snorkel. Relax by the water and read a book or just stroll the coastline.
