Kau & South Point District Masthead

The southerly most tip of the United States. Great Fishing and a unique Green Sand Beach of olivine, that whalers thought were diamonds. Quiet town of Naalehu and the Congregational Church at Waiohinu are Old Hawaii

eaving Captain Cook & Honaunau area and traveling south on Highway #11 you will shortly find the Hookena Beach Park turn off just past Kealia. In it's day Hookena was an important interisland steamer landing. in 1889, Robert Louis Stevenson mentioned his experience at the landing as followes, "The boat was run in upon a breaker and the passengers ejected on a flat rock, where the next wave submerged us to our hoses. There we continued to stand, the rain drenching us from above, the sea from below, like people mesmerized: and as we were all (being travelers) decked out with the green garlands of departure, we must have offered somewhat the same appearance as a shipwrecked picnic." Hookena offers a nice pocket beach with very vine black sand with a touch of coral sand. Look for the sandy entry/exit point. Most of the time there will be a local entrepreneur hawking local lauhala or a cold coconut.About an hour drive down and back up to Hwy #11.

A little further south on Hwy.#11 you will see the Milolii Beach County Park. Nice area for diving. Big coconuts and a past favoret spot for opelu fishing. Small local community. About an hour down and back up to Hwy#11.

WhalesJust past Hawaii Ocean View Estates you will find the cut off to South Point. South Point is the southerly most tip of the United States of America. About a 60 minute hike south and you will find a very unique Green Sand Beach. (volcanic sand crystels of olivine). Sometimes a beachcomber is rewarded with a gem quality stone. South Point has a park area but Ka Lae, "the point" has very turbulent converging winds & currents offshore. Great for fishing, some of the worlds best, but don't expect to let the kids play in the ocean. Well worth the time just to be able to say, "I have been as far south, in the good-ol'-US, as you can go and still be dry".
