Travel down the volcanic western coastline of the Kohala Coast and follow the signs to find a spectacular oasis that has earned a reputation as one of the island of Hawaiʻi's finest beaches. The largest of the island's white sand beaches, Hāpuna Beach is located adjacent to the Hāpuna Beach Resort and offers good conditions for swimming, bodyboarding, sunbathing and snorkeling. During the early part of the year, it’s possible to spot migrating whales in the distance as well.

Please note: Hawaiʻi's ocean and beach conditions are as unique as the islands themselves.
