Hiking to the Gorgeous Hidden Honomalino Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii
One of South Kona’s most magical hidden black sand coves—Honomalino Bay
Tropical hidden beaches are one of my favorite things about living in Hawaii!! I believe in living each day to the fullest and really appreciating everything you’ve been given and have! This place I hold dear to my heart, Honomalino Bay…
I grew up in Papa Bay Estates, a small rural subdivision located in South Kona with homes for sale on acreage like this sweet self-sufficient 3 bed/2 bath home on over 5 acres (MLS# 240525), and as kids, my dad would always take us down to Honomalino Bay, which was only 5 miles away!! We loved it! Now, I live in Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, only about 15 miles away from the Bay, and take my own family there at least once a week!
Once you get to the bottom of Milolii Road, you park at the pavilion and it’s a short, but gorgeous 20 minute hike through canopied trees, white sand beaches, barren lava fields, and epic coastal cliffs that lead you to a secluded black sand beach covered in coconut palms!! It’s like going on an adventure with Dora the Explorer! (Yes, I have 2 kiddos and often get to go on missions with Dora and the gang!)

I truly believe that there is more than one definition to ‘living in Hawaii.’ What I mean by that is you can live in the most beautiful place in the world and work, and get so caught up in ‘life,’ and forget why you chose to live where you are in the first place…I choose to live and really enjoy, and soak up every part of true Hawaii!!
The beach, the volcanoes, hiking, rain forests, waterfalls, golfing, paddling, kayaking, Iron Man, parades, the ocean, whales, dolphins, mountains, valleys, rainbows…I could go on and on…That’s why I choose to live here on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii and dedicate my life to my family, myself, and helping others achieve their Hawaii dream!
Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions, or if you would like to take a look at some of the amazing beaches and properties Hawaii has to offer…I’d love to help!! You can also check out my previous blog posts here!
