Amazing white sand beach. Lovely shallow shelving beach and clear but wavey water. Parking lot is close, costs $5. Boards can be hired.
Nice beach for swimming and surf exercise.
Beautiful water....,,all shades if blue!
Good sand beaches, but no real shade. Spencer beach is better and more comfortable. Body surfing and rip tides are the only two reasons to go to this beach.
Wasn't quite white sand, more light brown. Sand was soft. Make sure to come when sun is out, overcast makes it look darker
Snorkeling on the north end was easier with lighter waves. Just skim further up the shoreline.
Perhaps the best beach in the world. So good they charge for parking. $5
Sand is soft as salt.
This is a gorgeous, huge, beautiful white-sand beach! Visitors pay $5 (good all day), but it's worth it!
Pretty white sand beach with shaded picnic table areas, food, and rentals a bit higher up. Saw some sea turtles!
White sand, clear and teal watered beach, with water so soft and comfortable you'll spend more time in than out. Check out the cave behind the southern lava rock face. You can wade to it in the water.
Gorgeous white sanded beach. Nice waves for boogie boarders and body surfers. Bring a lot of sunscreen and an umbrella - no shade on the beach. There are also picnic areas above the beach.
Great for families. Pavilions, snack bar, and life guards.
Great boogie boarding. No shade anywhere, so use sun block!
Postcard perfect Sandy bottom beach, not common on the big island. Don't expect to see much for snorkeling, but we did have a sea turtle swim through our legs! Get here early as it's a popular spot!
15' waves today, boogie boards are a must have !
Хороший пляж для бодидрага. Песок, Большие волны, нет камней в зоне купания. Вход 5$. Есть парковка душ и раздевалки с туалетом.
Best boogie boarding on the island. Sand is amazing!
Come around 4:30 pm, theres less people and the sun isn't too hot. Nice breeze too.
Surprisingly good snorkeling around the rocks in the middle-left of the beach, saw many large reef fish, Sea urchins, and even an eel. Water depth gets down to 12 feet or so at the far side.
Paradise Haven love it
A-Frame Shelters ->
They do charge $5 for parking now but you can see, improvements have been made. Maybe it keeps the riff raff out. And yes, of course, THE best beach on the island!
Beautiful beach, $5 fee for non-residents
Wear sun protection.
Amazing! White sand. Gorgeous water. And even though it is a popular spot, it's pretty big so it's not crowded.
Best beach on island
There's a cool cove at N end of beach: walk N toward the hotel, then W along the trail at hotel lawn edge. Look down. There it is! Swim N just outside the cove for relatively neat & easy snorkeling.
Perfection. Snorkel toward the left and around the rocky point. Swim anywhere. Relax. Enjoy.
I work here lol...
For shade, come early and claim a spot by the rocks and trees.
Best beach I've ever been to. Sea turtles, boogie boarding, or just laying out make for a great afternoon. Don't forget your umbrella! There's no shade anywhere.
If your looking for a nice long white sanded beech, this is it.
There is a handicap access road on the left of the entrance. Very helpful for dropping off handicapable people who forgot their handicap placards.
Beautiful beach, but no shade, so bring the sunscreen and keep on applying it if you are a haole like me. Come early to claim a nice spot before the crowds arrive.
If you someplace to relax and enjoy life, this is it.
The perfect beach for fun in the sun and surf - went on a Thursday afternoon and had plenty of room to relax
Hapuna Beach..Rarely anyone after dusk, so its amazing until gates close at 8pm.
Park upper lot always. Side trail takes you right to restrooms and Beach. Stick to the rocks at left if any wind.
Ultra soft luxurious white sand beach - best I've been to so far:)
One of the 2 Best Beaches in the Big Island beside Mauna Kea
Nice beach! A little crowded but nice waves!
Beautiful white sand beach!
By far the best beach on Hawaii! Bring a boogie board, the waves are amazing! No shade so bring your own if you need it.
Best beach on Hawaii for swimming
Find the cave on the way left near the cliffs.
Its not the only white sand beach by kona... But you def need an umbrella if youre a malihine or you will leave looking like a lobster
One of the best beaches on the Big Island
Best beach going ever!! Definitely some awesome waves out here!!
