Born and raised on the Big island, Makalawena is a true local spot. Hidden by trails, and a 4wd road off the Highway makes this spot exclusive. The passage way once known by word of mouth is now in exposed in books such as Big Island Revealed.
This is a gorgeous stretch of beach features white sandy hills and crystal clear blue waters. Snorkeling is a must!
There's a hiking trail that leads from Kona Coast State Park into Makalawena. Be sure to take what you need and water, this will take awhile. No Bathrooms! Its worth the walk for sure. Being a Native Hawaiian this need be SAID, Take Care of our beautiful Beach's as we share its beauty with you! WE ARE WATCHING.
