  • Absolutely breathtaking views! Standing on that edge is amazing. A must see on the Big Island of Hawaii. If you are daring enough to jump the rocks to the left are an easier climb out than the ladder.
  • DEFINITELY go to the Green Sand beach. BREATHTAKING!! Stay cool & take the 3 mile trip via the locals that offer in the parking lot. They are so nice & it was only $40 on 4.16.13.
  • Definitely jump! It's a great experience and makes it worth the drive. Just wait and watch someone else to know where to jump and where to climb back up.
  • It looks like you can jump in and you definitely can. There is a rope to bring you back up. But do so at your own risk.
  • Just Jump!!!
  • Jump off the top or you'll regret it!(Ladder out of ocean is just below)
  • The southern most point in the US. Believed to be where the Hawaiians first landed between 400 and 800AD. Amazing view of nothing but ocean from this spot to Antarctica.
  • Excellent sunset watching and star gazing. No entry fee.

  • The most southern point in the United States
  • Amazing views!!! The jump was so great and insane! I climbed the rocks which was a lot easier than the ladder
  • Spectacular scenery. Be very judicious of conditions if choosing to get in the water.
  • It can be very windy... Don't jump when the waves are crazy
  • See the water flowing past on its way to Antarctica.
  • Make the drive, park your car, then walk south, and keep walking south until the end, a 10-minute walk ... now you're at the southernmost point of Hawaii and the US! The views are spectacular.
  • Was one of the best experiences of my life!
