Laupahoehoe Point Park Review

Here the surf pounds the jagged black rocks at the base of a stunning point. This is not a safe place for swimming, however. Still vivid in the minds of longtime area residents is the 1946 tragedy in which 21 schoolchildren and three teachers were swept to sea by a tsunami.

    Pretty, but unswimmable beach

    Rocky beach with dangerous waves, but pretty enough to stop by and take a picture if you're passing by.
