Kahaluu Beach, Keauhou

4.2
#6 of 9 in Outdoors in Keauhou
Popular with snorkelers, Kahaluu Beach is known for its unusually friendly fish, clear waters, and black-sand shore with lava rock. A surrounding, submerged rock wall keeps large waves farther out, allowing you to wade and swim in calm water. Large schools of curious fish swim directly up to you, or you can paddle away from the beach to see coral that feeds the local marine life. Don't be surprised to spot sea turtles, too: the peaceful creatures regularly visit this beach. Restrooms, showers, and lifeguards are on site.

    While visiting the big island of Hawaii our family first went to Kahaluu Beach (snorkel beach). Easy for beginners and somewhat shallow area with lots of fish and sometimes turtles.  more »

    I liked this beach, just a little crowed so get there early for a spot. Waves are very small so good for children and non swimmers  more »
