Hike time: 20 mins. Honomalino Honomalino beach is accessible from Mioli’i which is one of the few remaining traditional Hawaiian fishing villages lying at the end of a long winding road along the southern Kona Coast. Don’t be offended if you’re not welcomed with a warm Aloha by local villagers, they are a tight-knit community and enjoy their privacy. I wouldn’t suggest pointing your cameras at them either. From the Mioli’i Beach Park, between the restrooms and a yellow church, you will find a clearly marked sign posting the beginning of the trail. Follow it for about 20 minutes through the trees and lava rocks, staying to the right whenever it forks to avoid trespassing on private property. The trail is quite easy though be sure to wear shoes and watch out for big thorns. Honomalino is actually a gray, or salt-and-pepper beach because it has a mixture of black lava sand and white sand. It lined with palm trees and kiawe trees, with morning glories crawling along the sand. Be sure to bring some snorkeling gear because this bay has some great coral and good swimming as long as the water is calm.
