Pololū Valley

This valley is a hikers paradise offering sweeping views of the Hamakua Coastline. This naturally pristine valley is located along the northeast side of Hawaii Island and is part of the north Kohala Mountain range. Parking at the top of the valley, visitors can enjoy the breathtaking scenic views on the way down to the valley floor. Pack a picnic and enjoy the jet-black sand beach and serene natural environment. This is such a special location to spend a warm sunny afternoon relaxing on a beach towel, and enjoy the rolling deep blue pacific waves. Wind and wave action have created beautiful sand dunes that separate the beach from the rest of the lush valley. Please be respectful when exploring, the dunes are roped off to protect visitors from walking across historical Native Hawaiian burial sites (there are also signs). Notable mentions: parking is limited, we recommend you get there early to snag a parking space. This intermediate trail is not for novice hikers; due to the trail’s steep and rocky terrain, shoes with good tread are recommended (not slippers/ flip-flops). Due to strong ocean currents, waves, and no lifeguard, swimming is not recommended. It should also be noted that there are no bathrooms here. Be sure to apply/bring sunscreen, a nice big shady hat and lots of water.

Address: Pololū Beach, Hawaii 96755
