Located in the Big Island's Ka'u district on the island's south shore, the main attraction at Whittington Beach Park is its shoreline. Even though there is no beach that's suitable for swimming here, the dark lava rocks, deep blue waters and remote atmosphere make for great photo opportunities.
The 0.8-acre park was named after Richard H. Whittington in 1948. He was an early settler in this area who had a home near the park. The park used to be a run-down place in the past, but upgrades have been done so it's worth a visit (even though water activities aren’t possible here). The park has picnic tables and restrooms.
