Holoholokai Beach Park is a rocky strip of coastline boasts something completely different, but still fascinating waterfront: a walk through prehistoric Hawaii, told in the words of ancient art. The beach is next to the Malama Petroglyph Trail leading to the Puako Petroglyphs, the largest collection of petroglyphs in Hawaii.
There is more rock than sand on Holoholokai Beach, but the black lava rocks mixed with white coral rubble make for interesting beach scenery. It's not a good beach for swimming because the nearshore ocean bottom is rocky, which makes entering the ocean difficult.
Located near the Mauna Lani Resort, it is a convenient location yet feels miles away from anything.
