Kehena Black Sand Beach and Sunday Drum Circle

Kehana Beach is a beautiful black sand beach off of Hwy 137 (The Red Road) near the 19 mile marker, about 20 minutes from the Bamboo House. You can't see the beach from the road so look for parked cars about 5 miles south of MacKenzie State Recreation Area.

A favorite of locals, you have to hike down a short but somewhat rugged cliff path to get to this clothing optional beach (an earthquake in 1975 destroyed the staircase that used to lead down to the shore).

Sunday afternoons there's an everyone welcome Drumming Circle.

Bring your drum or just join in the singing and dancing!

Kehana Beach is often visited by Spinner Dolphins, occasionally by Sea Turtles and seasonally by Humpback Whales all visible with the naked eye.

Please be careful, swimming can be hazardous due to rough water, strong currents and high waves.

Aloha, Catherine
