Honomalino Bay (on the Big Island's / Hawaii Island's southwestern coast) is located south of Milolii (fishing village). The bay has a half-mile-long black-sand beach and is accessible only by boat (ship) or by foot (from the village). The beach (aka "salt-and-pepper beach") is lined up with high palm trees. A short hike to Honomalino Bay passes through a rainforest, also crossing lava flows from Mauna Loa (active volcano). At Honomalino Bay there are no any facilities, and camping and fires are forbidden.

From Kona are offered bus tours to Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park (180-acres NP at Honaunau Bay/island's south coast) and also to Puu Waawaa Forest Reserve (State Wildlife Sanctuary on the island's north coast).
