The second beach we visited on Day 3 was Kiholo Bay, located between Waikoloa area and Four Seasons resort area on the west coast of Big Island.
We only stopped for about half an hour, which was definitely too short. We didn’t walk too far away from the parking area, and I just found out that it is not the location of the bay, which is located further north. We missed the entire bay!
The bay has a black shoreline crushed lava gravel, and it is very worth exploring and hiking. Even though I didn’t go far, I still saw many sea cucumbers and other sea creatures in between the rocks. Many articles mention that there are more to see close to the bay, including Queen’s Bath, a beautiful spring-fed freshwater pool inside a lava tube, turquoise-colored water, and sea turtles.
I totally need to come back and hike to the bay.
