This beach was such a find.
A few short miles north of the Kona Airport.
When you see the veterans cemetery sign on the mountain side you'll see the beach entrance across the highway. Travel down one mile on a curvy road to a small parking lot.
Beach entrance is through some rocks, nothing too bad that can't be maneuvered. The beach sand is so soft. No rocks, seaweed, or bugs on this beach. Swimming is a dream here. No rocks in the water. My boys were able to boogie board with no scrapes on their knees and legs.
We spent two beach days here. Busier on weekends. Can be windy at times.
There are showers to rinse off.
