Exploring Hawaii’s Big Island can be a big undertaking, but it doesn’t have to be. Avoid the stress of planning out all the details with this guided tour that includes round-trip transport, lunch, snacks, and bottled water for your convenience. Because there’s minimal walking distance during this tour, it’s perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels. Plus, if the weather gets dreary, rain gear is provided to keep you dry.

Lots of fish visible close to shore. Beautiful area, although parking can get crowded. There's a covered area with picnic tables

My wife wanted to see sea turtles and she read this was the place to see them. The reviews were correct and we saw one. With that in mind I can share that there are better places to find sea turtles- Kaloko-Honokohau to name one. The selling point for this beach is that it’s within walking distance of hotels and condos along Ali I drive in Kailua. It’s not an overly large beach and we were fortunate to find a parking spot in the parking lot. The beach has some sandy areas interspersed with rocks and almost a tide pool look. It’s very popular with snorkelers and all services are available, including restrooms, food, and rentals (snorkel gear too). However, my opinion is that there are a number of beaches in Kona that outshine this beach.

For a family of moderatly experienced snorkelers this beach is perfect. We saw a sea turtle and an abundant grouping of fish. Great rainbow as the sun was setting. Awesome!!

Short of time (one day in port on Pride of America) we decided to visit the beach for snorkelling. Hired gear from lovely, enthusiastic volunteers who gave lots of advice about how to enjoy the snorkelling without hurting the fish. As a weak swimmer I appreciated the complementary pool noodle to keep me safe and buoyant in the water! I'm over fifty and found it a bit difficult getting into water from slippery, rough rocks at shore. From then on, absolutely loved seeing the huge numbers and range of fish. Must have seen twenty five different species at least, including schools of gorgeous yellow tangs, raccoon butterflyfish, and many others. Good facilities including lifeguard, change rooms and toilet, snorkel rental, food truck. Because time was tight we took a Lyft from town to beach and back again instead of waiting for the trolley shuttle which was about 1 1/4 hours wait. Very cheap and convenient for our group of three.
