“Nice beach but waves can be rough”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Very nice beach but the waves can be rough. A few in our party had some bumps and bruises from boogie boarding. Nice white sand. Not much shade so bring an umbrella.

“good for boogie boarding”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I liked hearing and seeing the waves crash onto rocks. BE CAREFUL it is easy to get caught up in beauty and literally get swept away.

“Nice Small Beach”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a great beach the waves are not too big just enough. It does get crowed on the weekends. Limited parking is there as well. Best time to go is the morning before it gets too busy. Easy to find if you are staying in Kona it is south of downtown Kona.

“Cute Little Beach”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is a great, local-style beach with a big shore dump for body-surfing. It is just across the road from where we stayed at the Kona Sugar Shack.
