Beautiful Coastal Park with Swimming

Ahalanui Park is a small, pretty little coastal park where locals swim. We didn't want to disturb their privacy (though this is a public beach). We walked along the lava rocks... read more

Looking for a family beach to which we could take a child to swim and play. Tried this one which is a big thermally heated pool. Around the pool is a breakwater with crashing waves. Not the experience we wanted. Many people seemed to have camped overnight and were waking up as we arrived. What beach there is happens to... More

Watch the sun set and the rise of the full moon in the warm ponds last week. Amazing. One of my favorite places to relax on the Big Island.

Lovely beach park and swimming /hot tub. The temperature fluctuates but when we were there it was nice and warm and perfect for a midday soak and swim. Off the beaten path, but a great place to stop after the lava tree state park, tide pools and a beautiful drive in the surrounding area as well. The swimming pool/hot tub... More

Ahalanui Park is a small, pretty little coastal park where locals swim. We didn't want to disturb their privacy (though this is a public beach). We walked along the lava rocks and photographed the beautiful scenery....blue skies, palm trees, lava rocks and crashing waves...simply go and enjoy.

We went there as a family and enjoyed the refreshing pool. When we were there it was not particularly warm; but definitely not cold either. We liked swimming around looking for the hotspots while also watching the wild waves outside the pool area.

First, it is a little secret not fully discovered by a big busses tours. I think it is simply too far away from main attractions. Most tourists go visit the Lava Tree State Park nearby, then the Issac Hale Beach for a hot pool at the beach, and then Ahalanui. The road to the Park is awesome ~ line up... More

This is such a neat spot! Unfortunately, the waves were crashing over the barrier when we visited, so the water had cooled considerably, but we still had a swim and enjoyed this unusual situation. Worth a visit! **Note however that the map location on TA is incorrect!! This pool is actually located near mile marker 10.

If you're looking for a low key and relaxing place this natural hot spring is the place. The water is pleasantly warm and is heated from the local volcano. The bathrooms are the only negative since they are run down sani huts.

Low key park with nice, warm thermal pool large enough for all the visitors. Perfect place for a dip in the thermals followed by picnic lunch in the sun.

The place is certainly worth a visit. You will find a vast thermally heated pool right on the coast with the big surf flowing in with every wave. The water is crystal clear and nice and warm in many areas, getting cooler near the canal that connects to the ocean. The area is shady, has picnic tables and free parking,... More
