Green Sand Beach Tour from Hilo side


We begin from the Hilo side of the island and make our way towards South Point, the southern most point in the United States.  During the drive we will see how dramatically the landscape changes so quickly.  If you are staying on the Kona side of the island, you are more than welcome to meet me in Hilo to begin the tour


First we will visit Punalu'u Black Sand Beach and, hopefully, see the Hawaiian sea turtles basking in the sun.  When we are finished at the beach we will head to Punalu'u Bake Shop for a pit stop where you can also grab some lunch, ice cream, pastries, etc.


When we get to the cliffs at South Point you might see some folks jumping off into the beautiful ocean.  You can even try if you like!  Just a short drive down the road is where we begin our off road adventure.  This ride is not for the faint of heart as it is very bumpy.  However, once you arrive at the beach, the views are amazing (see pictures).  Getting to the beach requires a walk down the side of a steep hill.  Not recommended for those with health issues.


Let me show you the beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii!
