Isaac Hale Beach Park - Temporarily Closed for Camping
Pohoiki black sand beach is one of the newest (August 2018) black sand beaches on the Big Island and is part of Isaac Hale Beach Park. This is a very beautiful beach in the Puna district and officials are currently working diligently to restore the park after it was partially overrun by lava. The new park is dedicated as a safe and peaceful place for all families but not all services you’d expect from a county park are available yet including camping.
The lava flow created four Natural Ocean Thermal Ponds. The Department of Health is giving notice that these ponds are not disinfected and, due to the risk of bacterial infections, the public should not enter these ponds if they have open wounds. There is no drinking water in the park so bring plenty of drinking water when visiting. There are also portable toilets available.
