Whenever you're in Kona, try and take some time to stop and visit this beach right in town. It's a great place to go snorkeling or surfing if the swell's up!
Loved the boogie boarding, the locals that provided musical background, and the turtles that decided to swim along with us the last day of our stay. Would prefer not to have to deal with the smoke from fellow beachgoers.
AKA La Aloa Sand gone usually January-February, Otherwise I'm bouncing in the surf every day Caution, waves can be big - do NOT try to stand in the "clobber zone". Go ahead and get out to the "break line" or beyond. It's saltwater, so you'll float (unless your a skinny kid)
This is a great, but crowded beach when the sand is there. Often in the winter the sand is taken away from by the high surf. Can be a dangerous undertow so be careful and watch for warning signs. Lifeguard on duty.
The white sands have returned to the shore after its disappearing act over the winter with the heavy wave action. This beach has a number of names other than its given name of La aloha Beach. It is locally known as both White Sands and Disappearing Sands. This is a lovely and accessible to town beach. However, due to waves,... 更多
I've come here in the summer, November, and April. There has always been sand when we've come, though at certain times of the year because high surf, the sand is washed away. Hence the nickname Disappearing Sands Beach. Waters can be rough, so be careful. People like to boogie board here. It's usually crowded but is a nice little beach... 更多
This is a lovely white sand beach with some good breakers. Like all of the Ali Drive beaches it is usually busy. The parking is at a premium. There are was/change rooms and picnic tables.
Lots of locals and not as many tourists here. Huge body/boogie boarding waves when we were here. Not great if you just want to swim around a bit or take a casual walk along the beach. Turtles were seen enjoying the waves too. Lifeguards on duty which was good. Not a Sandy beach. Very rocky.
A very nice sandy beach that is shared nicely with natives and us tourists. Minimal facilities and that is great. Restrooms and sand showers are included.
Went here for our second dive without a dive master. Felt safe, heard whales. Saw octopus, puffer fish and ventured into our first cave. Large enough to not be to cramped, it goes about 45 feet in. Enter on sandy side, swim south toward brown condos, follow shore until you see cave.
We really liked this small beach. If you walk just to the south about 100 yards, follow the path down to another smaller beach that few people venture. There you will see lots of marine life, including juvenile green sea turtles and thousands of colorful reef fishes.
Very busy beach in good location but the winter swells have taken the sand away for now. Good location for people on south end of Kona ...limited parking and the sand will be back in summer.
