Highway 19, West Hawaii
This sandy beach is fronted by a rocky lava shelf making swimming poor in this bay. The best beach area is located in front of the Kona Village Resort. The entire bay is surrounded by sand and palm trees but the surf is often rough. Be sure to monitor ocean conditions carefully before entering the water here. The rocky lava shelf makes access difficult, slippery and dangerous.
The views are very nice here but there are better beaches along this coast.
The bay is open to the ocean so the surf is often rough making swimming dangerous.
Sandy and rocky beach
Take Highway 19 north from Kona. Turn left just past Mile Marker #87. At the Four Seasons Resort guard house ask for a "public access pass" to the beach. Turn right at the intersection and follow the road to the parking area and Public Access trails to the beach.
