Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
One of the few white-sand beaches on the island, Magic Sands is the local name for Laʻaloa Beach County Park. The official name means "very sacred" in the local dialect. The ruins of an ancient Hawaiian temple are just south of the beach. However, it isn't spirits that give the beach its nickname; it's the disappearing sand that is sometimes washed away in storms to reveal black volcanic rock. Strong waves just off shore make the beach a popular spot for experienced surfers. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Kailua-Kona holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Magic Sands and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
