Kiholo Bay – Hawaii Big Island – Epic Trip Adventures


Hiking to Kiholo Bay is a nice short walk along the Kohala Coast. Kiholo Bay is a tide pool known for having uniquely turquoise water. The turquoise water is a result of ocean saltwater meeting and mixing with fresh water. The hike follows the beach over black lava rock, passing a flooded lava tube known as the Queen’s Bath.
