Driving back from the end of Highway 270 at the Pololu overlook to the north, you’ll see a curvy road angle off to the right. Follow it for a mile, past the cemetery with the weathered old stones, and you’ll come upon the green lawns and large picnic pavilion of Keokea Beach Park.  This park makes for a pleasant rest stop and picnic spot while you are exploring North Kohala.  The rugged landscape makes for a pretty sight.  Make sure you stop here on your way back from the popular Pololu Valley.

The black-boulder beach in the protected cove is suited for fishing in the calm summer months, but heavy surf makes this a hazardous swimming beach. Picnic tables, rest rooms, showers, drinking water, electricity, and a campsite make this a popular weekend destination for local folks. Off Hwy. 270, near Pololu overlook, PHONE: 808/961-8311.
