Without a doubt, a must see stop on the road to Hana. If you plan to swim, this is one of the best places to do it. It’s busy, but so beautiful with it’s black sand and blue water.

Had a blast exploring the park and the trail along the coast. Black Sand Beach was soft and one of a kind and the cavern was spectacular. Well worth the drive to Hana and a must stop when you arrive.

We loved the beach and scenery so much, we took the road to Hana twice to see again and get more pix.

Must stop when traveling the Road to Hana on Maui Hawaii. Walking trails. Wear comfortable sneakers or hiking shoes. Blow holes and wonderful scenery of pacific. Bathrooms available. Fresh water showers.......picnic tables....plenty of parking.....no charge to enter. Food truck.....road is very narrow.

I'm sorry I don't know but it is a state park so I'm sure there's a government site that can give you that info.
