Couple of options here...

State park at south end of Puako drive....a little rough , but a nice small bay for snorkeling if you are comfortable with non beach entry.

Beach 69 is on the old Puako road heading north (right turn) once you make turn off from highway. Several nice snorkel spots, showered and toilets, some nice Sandy spots and easy snorkeling. Weekdays not too crowded.

Hapuna beach is your lifegurded, busy location one mile further north on same road....we passed as the snorkeling was not as nice and beach was more crowded...

This beach is the definition of paradise. The trees make it just different enough from the Big Islands' other beaches to be a cut above in beauty.

Puako Bay is great for snorkeling and diving if you are experienced. Entries can be a bit difficult if the waves are coming in strongly. Nice place to have a picnic under the trees. Just enjoy the older cottages and churches as you drive to the beach accesses.
