Maybe it's because we were staying at the Westin, but this was our FAVORITE beach that we visited. We had access the Westin lounge chairs and umbrellas so that was definitely a plus and we simply walked to it from the resort. The beach is...More
Great sand beach for families. Water was not rough and warm. We were there in August. We rented a couple umbrellas at the station by the parking lot/bathrooms.

We went to Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area twice while visiting the Big Island. The beach is fabulous - nice soft sand, good size waves for boogie boarding (not so good for snorkeling) and great facilities.
