Pololu Beach Lookout, The Big Island Hawaii

Description

If you feel like a long, lazy drive through misty green fields high above the sea, take the Kohala Mountain Road to Hawi and then head east to the Pololu Beach Lookout. After all those twists and turns in the road, you will be rewarded at the end by the sight of near-verticle cliffs covered in lush vegetation, and a perfect little black sand beach way below, pounded by violent surf.
You can walk down a steep, muddy trail to get better views.
Swimming is not recommended as the surf is rough.

Another stunning lookout is Waipio Valley Lookout.
