Description from the owner
You can throw a coconut from the front yard into Punaluu Bay!
Setting on the water's edge of Punalu'u Beach Park, you can literally see the visitors arriving and departing, buying souvenirs and snacks at the concession stands just across the way -- and have an exclusive view of the back side of the lifeguard's station!
Punalu'u Beach Park is THE famous Black Sand Beach (for the Big Island) known for "where the Hawaiian green sea turtles come a shore"!

Additional Location Information
Turtles bask in the sun on the black sand beach, you might fully expect to see a half a dozen turtles within 15 minutes. Be sure to be camera ready!
The snorkling is awesome and there is plenty of space to lay a beach towel down and relax -- either in or out of the sun.
The Green Sand Beach is 40 minutes away and the Volcano National Park 30 minutes away.
There are numerous restaurants, a famous sweetbread bakery, bank, grocery store, laundry, thrift store, hardware store and post office within a short 15 minute drive!
Sitting on the ridge above Punaluʻu is the Hōkūloa Church, a Memorial Chapel and graveyard built near the birthplace of Henry ʻŌpūkahaʻia (1792–1818) who inspired the missionary movement that forever changed Hawaii.
Kiʻi pohaku (petroglyphs) can be found near the County Park Pavilions within a protected area surrounded by a rock wall just past the parking area. It is easy to miss these “unmarked” ancient carvings.
To get to Punalu'u Beach Park, go south out of Kona on Highway ll. After going through the little town of Na'alehu and travelling for about 20 minutes or so, you will reach a four-way junction with a sign on the right that says "Sea Mountain Resort". Take the right turn, and go past the golf course and rest rooms, driving on the black sand to park by the hut that sells t-shirts.
