Kehena Black Sand Beach is quite possibly the most majestic black sand beach you will ever lay your eyes upon. Located in the Big Island’s Puna district, this beach is unofficially a clothing optional beach. There is often times nude people on the beach so be prepared!
The beach was originally formed in 1955 when lava flowed down the sea cliffs and into the ocean here. The area is notorious for dolphin sightings and sometimes called Dolphin Beach.
Swimming is possible here when the ocean is calm and actually one of the few places you can swim in the area. The surrounding area is covered in tropical fruit trees.
Parking is limited and the walk down is short but moderately difficult. Once down there, you will be happy you saw it.
