Kahaluu Beach, Keauhou

4.2
#6 of 8 in Things to do 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.

  • Be careful do not hit the body when swimming or walking rock so I was worried about, but typically had no problem. On the rocks along the beach (with a floating keep embellished body) saw two turtles. I think trolleybus stops, so good. It is cozy and had a better magic sand beach.

  • Lights are perfect for snorkeling! Reverse at sea do not sand, ring play, play ball, is the image that people choose us. Not noisy due to families with small children, the elderly, security was better. Even in shallow water fish, we encounter four turtles this time. Parking is free of charge will be parked about 50. Less to linger around so the snorkeling, the movement of the car and was active. Also the shower. Rock Center so barefoot is not good.
