If you like new things, you’ll simply love the Puna region and its beaches. Coastal land here is so young that sand beaches are rather unusual. One exception is the Kehena Black Sand Beach, also known as Dolphin Beach thanks to the frequently-spotted spinner dolphins. You’ll also find the ideal beach for exploring, snorkeling, picnicking, and much more.
