We headed north on Hwy 11 north of Kona and about 1-1/2 hours later found us at Mahukona Beach Park
This is near the north tip of the island in North Kohala district. We noticed the tents and just presumed that the people on the park bench had camped there.
It was not a walking beach due to all the lava rock but rather a place of solitude and a place to watch the wave action. We finally made verbal contact with those by the bench and noticed they had binoculars and were watching the passing whales. They told us that they had just seen a whale breach completely out of the water. Naturally we sat down and strained our eyes to try to see too. They did not volunteer use of their binoculars but we did see some whale "water squirts" . Their dog has taken a liking to my Pink attire
The crocs are comfortable and it made it easier to drive Hawaiian style as they could be removed easily. She (never told us her name) but there were two huge cruise ships in town (Kona) so they decided to head north to avoid all the crowds.
It seemed to be a safe environment for the campers but there are no facilities. There were signs warning you not to drink the water.
The dog really got attached to me and didn't want us to leave
but we had to press on and get to higher ground
I think that we come to Hawaii to enjoy the scenery and water, it sort of relaxes you and removes the stress of life. The warmer temperatures and palm trees exude a feeling of an exotic land, an escape from our daily routines. To walk on the beach and feel the sand between your toes
and to enjoy a tropical sunset with your partner

While were only on the Big Island of Hawai'i for a week, we did manage to visit a few beaches to experience the power of the ocean. Hope you like the video
