We drove the hour and 45 minutes from Kona to Honoli'i Beach to look for sea glass. Parking was on the street with the local surfers. The four of us were all very surprised to find chocolate colored water and not the pretty blue and green water found on the Kona side of the island. Unfortunately the beach consists of... More

About 40 steps to the bottom it is a hangout for the locals that like to surf. It is one of the few spots on the east side to do so. Parking is very limited as its in a residential area but you can drive through and get a few good pictures.

Beautiful place for those who just want to enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian coast or catch a wave at a prime local surf spot for beginners to old pro's.

A very cool beach to visit. Has a very happy vibe. Surfers, young old, male, female all having a great time. Nice grass area, interesting discoveries on the rock beach. Nice covered picnic areas. Downside is poor parking on the side of the road and maybe some thuggish looking folks just hanging out.

I went four times to Honoli'i. I saw a turtle and enjoyed the palm trees and turf. There is a lot of rocks, and not much sand, so wearing booties is probably a good idea.

Not really a beach. More of a local surf hangout where the surf isn't that good. I saw human waste floating in the water and decided to get out immediately.
