Pololu Beach Lookout
||The Big Island, HI|
Print Leave a comment
If you feel like a long, lazy drive through misty green fields high above the sea, take the Kohala Mountain Road to Hawi and then head east to the Pololu Beach Lookout. After all those twists and turns in the road, you will be rewarded at the end by the sight of near-verticle cliffs covered in lush vegetation, and a perfect little black sand beach way below, pounded by violent surf.
You can walk down a steep, muddy trail to get better views.
Swimming is not recommended as the surf is rough.

A wild stormy day at Pololu Lookout.
Take Hwy 250 (Kohala Mountain Road) or Hwy 270, the lower coastal road, to Hawi. Head east on Hwy 270 to where the road ends and you are at the Pololu Beach Lookout.
This is an interactive map, you can zoom and move it.
