This palm-tree lined, white sand beach is located south of Hāpuna Beach State Park on the Kohala Coast. Many tropical fish and marine life inhabit the area, including honu (sea turtles). While there are some rocky patches, there are also secluded spots of sand where you can enjoy relaxing on the beach beneath the shade of palm trees. 

Please note: Hawaiʻi's ocean and beach conditions are as unique as the islands themselves. Visit HIOCEANSAFETY.COM which constantly monitors the surf, wind, and reports from public safety officials that directly affect the conditions for safety of Hawaiian beaches. Use the hazard signs on HIOCEANSAFETY.COM as well to quickly assess conditions and help you find the appropriate beach for your visit.
