“Kua Bay Beach Park”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Kua Bay Beach is a gorgeous white sand beach surrounded by lava rocks. Its location and warm clear waters are absolutely amazing. You can find there turtles swimming close buy. Its parking area is still being developed but the beach itself is a paradise.
To get there: The beach is not marked on the road 19 at all, so it is difficult to find it. You have to drive north of Kailua-Kona pass the airport. Right after the Kekaha Kai State Park you will see a double hill on the left side of the road and a side road leading to it. On the other side of the main road you will see sign for the veterans cemetary. Turn left towards the hills and drive to the parking lot. Park and enjoy the beach.

“Ok Beach”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Went to this beach because it was close to where I was staying. It is small and not much sand. Only stayed for 2 hours, good place it you have young children. In a kinda cove so could also snorkel. Good if you do not have much time. Go in the morning, not many parking spaces.

“Small and busy”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Of course it is beautiful, but it was too crowded for us. Too many waves and surfers, not a place to stay on the water..
