  • Busy with hotel guest overflow, restrooms closed, guess it's safe with kids, but not really a calm, quiet, restful or peaceful place.
  • Very calm water, refreshing grass, easy and gentle ideal for young kids and elderly.

  • Next to a small dock where land small boats and sightseeing buses, but still there is a small reef well protected with many hedgehogs and lots of colorful fish, is amazing considering it's a point so crowded, also here to off to about 100 metres from the beach I saw a family of 5 with Cubs dolphins experience. P.s. someone added the photos but aren't real behind the beach there is a nice enough hotel and the beach is sandy water is not blue but being full of fish is definitely worth a visit

  • There are public beaches events before the King came and soon becomes a full but I think Beach BAR next door is only here.

Where to stay in Kailua-Kona
