We read the reviews and thought our non 4 wheel drive car could make it if we went slow but it was much farther than expected so we turned around and left. Very bumpy "road" if you can call it that.

The drive in is really amazing, an incredibly bumpy road through a field of lava, quite stunning to look at! We rented a Mustang, and it looks like a lot of other tourists did as well, not the best vehicle for this drive! You'll still...More

As many reviews indicate, the road can be rough. But if one just heads to the restrooms, palm trees and picnic tables area, the road is not at all difficult. For those of us with limited mobility and/or advancing age, this is still a prime...More

The road is nice down to this lovely beach. There isn't nearly enough parking. The sand is beautiful and the waves are awesome. Had a blast with a boogie board.

Rental cars will get beat up on this road. Super rough road - fun experience if you like to off road. Beautiful beach. Stinky restrooms. Bring provisions.
