“One of Our Favorite Beaches on the Big Island”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was among our top three favorite beaches on Kona, and we visited a lot of them during our two week vacation on the Big Island. There were facilities available -- both showers and toilets -- as well as picnic tables, sports courts, and lots of free parking. The beach itself is a good size and the water is calm enough to swim in during winter conditions. The water is crystal clear and you are practically on top of the reef as soon as you enter the water. We saw lots of fish and wish we had stayed longer. We were there on a weekday, but were told it gets very busy on weekends.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We didn't spend very much time here but on another day we would have spent the day here. We we had a goal of driving around the island in one day while seeing as much as we could.

“Great family beach”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Small, family-oriented beach with quiet cove, reefs perfect for snorkeling, lovely shade trees, and really nice bathrooms (a surprise for a state park)

“Good for the kids!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Decent swimming area, even when the surf was up at other locations. Very busy on weekends, with birthday parties and huge bar-b-cues, so super family friendly. Parking was good, along with bathrooms and showers. Basketball courts too.
