Known for its unique red sand and rocky shoreline and a large red cinder hill, named Ka Iwi o Pele, which, according to a Hawaiin legend,was where the Goddess Pele was killed by her older sister, and her bones were piled up to make this hill. Her spirit fled south-east from this point to the Big Island, where is is said to still reside today. This beach is also not suitable for swimming (due to strong currents and large boulders offshore), but local body boarders and surfers come here to surf.
