Green Sand Beach

This beautiful green sand beach is near South Point and is in the control of Department of Hawaiian Home Lands.  If you are planning a visit, call the DHHL and ask them if you can drive the road.  They will most likely say yes and give you the name of the person who has the authority to control access.  Very nice people.  Only take a high clearance 4×4 if you do drive the road or contact Epic! Tours and we’ll do the driving for you.

Once past the parking lot, continue to the boat launch and make the only left that is there.  Continue on the road, always staying to your left, until you reach the beach.  Now, there are many other roads and some run right next to the ocean.  It would be great to spend all day just exploring those roads and to take in the view from there.  But, if you intend to get to the beach, stay left, left, left.

The water is safe, beautiful and one-of-a-kind to swim in and remember to bring your grill.

Punalu’u Black Sand Beach is just a 45 minute drive from here.  Very easy to hit both a black and green sand beach in the same day.
