One of the only "beaches" in the Puna/Pahoa region this special little spot is a special place for it's many unique attributes. For starters, the southern end of the Big Island is newly formed land from an active volcano. Many of the shoreline in this part of the island are made up of steep cliffs and patches of volcanic rock. Kehena is one of the spots where the rock has been worn down to sand but it is black volcanic rock sand. Also, there are still rocky cliffs which you have to walk down to get to the ocean. Once you descend into the beach then you are in for a real unique experience. Clothing optional the beach is a regular gathering spot for local hippies and has somewhat of a gay scene. For the full effect check it out on Sunday afternoon when the weekly drum circle will be in full swing after Kalani's morning sun dance.
