Punaluu Black Sand Beach is the most famous black sand beach in Hawaii. While not the best swimming beach, the views are simply outstanding. Picnic in the shade of palm trees, observe hawksbill and green turtles, and a lily-covered lagoon. Nearby Ninole Cove offers a sheltered bay for snorkeling and a small snack shop.
