Punaluʻu is frequented by endangered Hawksbill and Green turtles, which can often be seen basking on the black sand. This is a perfect place to enjoy the scenery, explore the black sand beach, watch the sea turtles, and swim or snorkel. Swimming is dangerous as the area is very rocky.

The beach has a large amount of underground fresh water that flows in it. This fresh water is very cold and looks almost like gasoline mixing with the water. Legend has it that in the time of drought, the ancient Hawaiians living in the area would dive underwater with a jug to get their fresh water.
