Beautiful beach for lounging, swimming, and snorkelling. Not too far from Kailua-Kona either in terms of proximity.

Families, young and old alike enjoying the waves and sand. Saw sea turtles around the rocks. Beautiful spot!

Probably the most beautiful beach in Hawaii but small so it doesn't get the reviews. The waves are good but can turn dangerous so you have to be aware of that.

It is not very big, but easily accessible with no crowds. The sand and water is wonderful. We swam with sea turtles there which was an added treat. One of our favorites!

The Magic Sands beach is not very large, by "beach" standards, but it is beautiful and occasionally you will be lucky enough to share the water with a sea turtle. The reason for the name is that during certain times of the year, the tide takes much of the sand from the beach. Later in the year, the tide "magically" returns much of the missing sand.
