We went when it was windy in Waikoloa bc it is sheltered by trees. Waves can still get pretty big. The road in is super 4x4 and the parking can be quite busy. We really liked this beach though!
I have spent many weeks at this secluded beach and know some of its history. What makes it special is the brackish water that fills up the bay. There are lava tubes that allow rain water to flow through the coarse white sand and lesson the salt content. It is delightful to swim and the water is so clear! All... 更多
That perfect crescent of white sand with palm trees to give some shade if you need it. Well worth the slow ride in from the highway and it's no problem to find your own nice piece of the beach, especially on weekdays. One of our favourites!
With a sandy beach and a sandy bottom, a nice surf break, and clean facilities, this is by far our favorite beach on the island. Go during the week and get there early if you want to park near the access. The only negatives are a tricky short hike to the sand, and no lifeguards.
Sheet balls. Best beach ever. No one there. Driving over ancient Pahoehoe. Need 4x4. Cried leaving. Magical. Every other life experience results in suicide. Heaven.

Its about a 5-10 minute walk from the parking lot. Porta potty facilities. The sand is very course and loose and makes for... 更多
Got here about 4:30 & stayed until it was almost dark. We all had such a great time. Water was clear and beautiful. Daughter had fun picking shells. Son had fun wave surfing. There are 2 picnic tables in case you want to bring food out. Lots of families our playing and having a great time. Bathrooms available and showers... 更多
The rough road keeps most people out and I am ok with that. However, make the effort. You will not be disappointed once you get there. Be ready to dodge small canyons and holes on the drive in. Just take your time. We love it!!!!!!!!!!!
The only white sand beach we found on the Big Island on the Kona side. A mile north of the airport, down a road that was paved, once - a long long time ago. Really rough and cratered (way bigger than potholes). But if you brave the drive (slowly) you are richly rewarded with a soft sand beach with trees... 更多
