“Nice Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

It was easy to get to with a free parking lot across the street. It's free with a changing room and bathroom. There is a picnic area down the road if u want to cook out. It's free, very clean, and scenic!!! What more can you ask for:)

“Great beach to start out our trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great beach, beautiful setting and wonderful for boogie boarders. If you want relaxing waves, this is not for you. Facilities nearby and a parking lot to boot. We only went here once, it was so pretty.

“The Best Beach in Kona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

I'm a snorkeler and this is not the beach for that activity. Although on super calm days you can put on your mask and fins. This is the beach to play in the surf. There is a nice mix of locals and tourists. Sometimes the friendly aroma of pakalolo might tickle your nostrils. I enjoy reading a book in the shade and going in past the break and bobbing in the swell. There is always someone fun to talk to out there. Aloha!
