You can't miss with this beach. Please go there now. Great food and drink at the Mauna Kea resort. It is pricey but you can't beat the views. We had 3 sea turtles swim right past our group multiple times.

We love this beach! Beautiful white sand beach, great waves for fun boogie boarding, nice hiking on shoreline trail along gorgeous homes. Lovely spot!

Compared to beaches in the Caribbean, Thailand, Lombok, and Boracay; Hawaii's beaches are really only B+ beaches. If you don't get one of the first 30 spaces the hotel will valet your car for free. Then you need to eat something and get the ticket validated. You can eat something sort of reasonable and hangout at the beach all day. Walking north and south is a nice break. There are trees with shade.

Fairly expansive beach, beautiful soft sand, water perfect. We have had a couple of experiences seeing Honu (the sea turtle). Truly magical!

We visited 3 times in one week, never had a problem with parking as we always stopped by after 3 PM. Soft, fine sand, usually calm water. Not too crowded, bathrooms and showers available.
