Kiholo Bay

Hawaii > The Big Island > Kohala Coast
Length5.5 mi
Elev. Gain150 ft
Difficulty2 / 5
Rating7 / 10
The Kiholo Bay Trail starts as a hot and dusty trail, but it soon takes you through a breathtaking view of the beach and clear blue lagoon.

The trail begins behind the boulders, parallel to the Highway. It runs for a mile before reaching the beach. After enjoying the Bay, take a left and head south to check out the Bali house.

The Queen's Bath, is located about 75 yards from the end of the beach. Walk along the trail for half a mile and you will come across the black sand beach where you can take a dip if the waves are not too high. Next, you should backtrack to the first waypoint and continue north, along the beach for 200 yards, where you will reach a little bay within the Bay!

After walking for a few minutes, you will reach the most attractive part of the trail - the clear blue lagoon. There are a number of turtles here - though you should take care not to touch them when you take a dip in the lagoon. Once you have had your fill, you should head back to the first waypoint and go back to the car

Best time to go
