POHOIKI BAY is located on the newly bulldozed Hawaii state route 137
which begins at MacKenzie State Park in the Puna District of Hawai'i Island
on the south east coast.

Also known as Isaac Hale Beach Park, Pohoiki Bay now has a brand new
black sand beach, a former boat launch, oceanfront park, hot spring and
popular surfing spot. The park is named in honor of Private Isaac K. Hale.
During the Korean War, Hale served in the United States Army's 19th
Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division and was killed in action in 1951.
