A Big Island Road Trip: Paradise Found @KrystleCallaway

Pictures & Plane Tickets

Our road trip along the Big Island’s south shore included stops at the amazing Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park, the windy Southernmost Point in the U.S., and even the South Kona Fruit Stand where we tried Lychee’s for the first time (not a fan!) But the highlight of our road trip was Punalu’u Beach (pronounced poo-na-loo-oo): a palm tree-lined beach with the blackest sand I’ve ever encountered.

Hawaiian Honu (green sea turtles) are known to frequent the area because they love to bask in the sun, and within seconds of kicking off my flip-flops and walking through the scalding hot black sand we spotted a honu down by the shore. We saw three more turtles that day, all sunning themselves the entire time we were at the beach. From what I hear, that’s a slow day on Punalu’u for honu, but you won’t hear me complaining!
