Kahaluu Beach, Keauhou
(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The beach is small and crowded. The entry into the water is not obvious because there are a lot of rocks. There is free parking next to the beach, bathroom, snacks, bus for rent snorkling equipment and showers. With the mask and snorkel, we saw turtles (without even having to look for them according to the Lonely Planet and c is true), fish and corals. Most of the people are swimming in the Middle but we saw three turtles in 3' to the left of the Bay at the level of the rocks-rocks, accessible by foot. The beach is worth the cost for its marine wealth but not for the beach itself. Do not touch or walk on the coral because it destroyed them because they are alive.

  • Great place to visit! Sea Turtles napping on the beach, beautiful black sand, decent accommodations, and (best of all) free! Right off the main highway from Kona to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Wel...  more »
  • To the turtle in the Hawaiian Islands fairly easily, I think, but will meet the beach here. Located through the fashionable shops of Kona, comfy and lunch, etc. However, popular, or whether more people would
