It is about a 20 minute hike that is marked with lots of “private property” signs but if you stay on the trail you will bypass each and every private area and then it opens up to the most beautiful, breath taking and private spots on the Big Island. There have never been more than a handful of people on this beach making it that much more enjoyable. With a good book and some sun screen I can’t think of a better way to spend a day!
This is how to get to Hanomalino Bay beach: DRIVE to Miloli’i Beach Park, HIKE to Honomalino Bay. Take the winding one lane paved road just south of the 89 mile marker. This is a very local place, and it is a courtesy to leave it to the locals on weekends and holidays. Park and take the trail heading south along the waterfront, through the tide pools. Ignore the “private” signs, access to the trail is public. You’ll regain the trail at the back of the sand and palm trees at the south end of Miloli’i. This beach is public also, but not too appealing with the “keep out” signs. You will have a 20 minute walk south to a beautiful and secluded black and white sand beach. Swimming is good when calm. Carry food and water. There are a few homes here, accessed by this trail or a torturous 4 wheel drive private road."
