Hiking & Camping

Pololu Valley

Past quiet Hawi town, the main road winds to a scenic spot overlooking spectacular Pololu Valley where the road ends. You will have an excellent bird’s eye view of spectacular green valleys and steep cliffs adorned with silver waterfalls as you look down the rugged coastline that blends with the deep blue ocean. A hiking trail dips 3 miles into Pololu Valley, which was heavily populated in ancient days, and provides access to a beautiful black sand beach. Swimming is not recommended as currents are at times hazardous.

Mahukona Beach Park

A small park with large trees under which you may place your tent, Mahukona Beach Park has a pavilion with tables, restrooms, showers, electricity, and a grill. A pier a short distance from the camping area provides a great way to enter the clam waters of the harbor. This is a greaeat place for diving, snorkeling, swimming, and picnicking. To get there, follow Hwy. 19 north to the Hwy 270 Junction. Bear left and go north until you reach the Beach Park.
