Resting on a shoreline in Lower Puna is a secret that's starting to get out as a growing amount of people find their way in.

After passing through Pahoa Town and a quick drive down to Mackenzie State Park, those brave enough to take a one hour trek over jagged areas of hardened lava will find this stretch of road, leading to Pohoiki.

While that lava cut off access to the community's only boat ramp in the area, what it gave back in return: a brand new beach.

Here's what Isaac Hale Beach Park looked like in July prior to it being filled with new sand.

The boat ramp led out through the bay. Here's what it looks like today. A full beach,  one of the newest on earth.

At first, just a handful of residents could be spotted here at any given time.

"Now it's completely changed, its way different now, actually its more beautiful now then it was back then," Robert and Quintin Carvalho, fishermen, said. 

On this day, more than three dozen show up. There's one right on shore, right on cue, they're also off shore.

During the eruption, surfers had worried their only surf spots in this area would be taken away. At least one remains.        

"The really good spots out there are gone. At least we have something out there to surf so that's the main thing," Nathan Rubio, a surfer, said. 

On land, much of the parking lot here is untouched with lava stopping just short of the park.

Right around the corner, the flow also created a second beach. Hawaii County is still working on allowing the public to access the area.

If plans go accordingly, the mayor says that could happen by the end of 2018.

Even if it doesn't, residents say it'll be safe to assume Pohoiki's pair of secrets aren't secrets anymore.
