Pololu Valley

Pololu Valley

Pololu Valley is at the northern most part of the Big Island not far past the quaint town of Hawi. It is the perfect destination for a day trip to the beach for a picnic. It is 75 miles (120 kilometers) from Kona Bayview Inn and take just under two hours to make the drive.

The hike down to the valley is approximately 1/2 of a mile and it is a gradual sloped trail that zig-zags down to the bottom. It is not too difficult and takes about 15 minutes at a casual pace. People do swim here but the water can be rough and caution should be used. Water shoes are advised.


What to bring:

  • Drinking water
  • Walking shoes
  • Lip Balm
  • Rain poncho / Umbrella
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat

What we like:

  • Hike is mostly in the shade
  • Not too long (.5 miles)
  • Beautiful valley
  • Free
