The Kehena area is on the south east coast of Hawaii Island and encompasses several small, residential neighborhoods. Located along ‘Red Road’, named for the red cinder that used surface it, this is easily one of the most beautiful coastline routes you’ll ever drive. This area is home to Kehena black sand beach, sometimes called Dolphin Beach for the spinner dolphins that frequent it, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim or relax on the sand.
To the south, lava has been flowing for over 30 years and is often visible from the Kalapana lava viewing area, less than 10 minutes away by car. Head north on Red Road to find some of the area’s other unique attractions: Pohoiki Bay at Isaac Hale Park is the local surfing hot spot, and also the boat ramp for lava cruises; Ahalanui Park has a georthermally heated ocean-side lagoon that is close to Jacuzzi temperature; the Wai Opae Tidepools at Kapoho Vacationland provide some of the best snorkeling in the entire state, where dozens of tidepools formed by ancient lava flows have been designated a marine conservation area and are home to a wide array of sea life and beautiful coral gardens.
Eclectic Pahoa Village is a 15 minute drive, and is home to diverse and delicious restaurants, funky shops, grocery stores, gas, banks and other services. Historic Hilo town and the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park are both about an hour’s drive.
The neighborhood is rural and public transportation is slim to none, so you'll need a car. Parking in driveway.
