This was a great beach to sunbath and swim. The sand is fine and soft and the water isn't rocky at all. When I went the water was calm. I wish I had a paddle board at the time as it would be perfect paddle location. Beach is good for kids and has plenty of amenities.

We watched a great whale on the first day here and it was magnificent! Close to the beach to see it play in the water.

This beach has lots of amenities and is beautiful! We walked here from our hotel. It was very nice. Gets busy though. Lots of sunbathers and swimmers.

Hapuna Beach might be the most beautiful beach on the Big Island. We stayed next door at the Westin and found the beach to be wonderful. Very clean with lots of sand and great snorkling close by.
