  • We wandered down for the sunset and returned the next day to take a look at the history and grand temple (with appropriately gruesome accompanying tales) of Kamehameha the Great. The trails around the...  more »
  • Shade, benches and BBQ available. Beach is small, somewhat gravelly because bare feet that hurt a little bit. Dip main dish turned slowly on the beach. Also because the heiau is located next to the drop in the passing.

  • Perfect beach for relaxing, not for surfing. Would be great for little kids. We stopped after a long hike and rested and relaxed in the sun. Such a great beach. I would definitely recommend it!  more »

  • Very good facilities and a life guard is there also. Nice shallow water beach with shady spots to set up to relax and have picnics. The camp grounds being so close can be offsetting a little though. Takes away from the beauty a little having tents everywhere. Overall it's a nice family place.
  • Great place to bring the family. The facilities are clean and well maintained. With a lifeguard on duty during the day, it's a safe environment to enjoy a refreshing dip in the ocean. They also offer many picnic tables and a basketball court to enjoy. For those looking to spend a few days, campsites are also available. But make sure to plan accordingly as holidays and school breaks can fill up a year in advance. For those planning a party or large gathering, check out the pavillion overlooking the ocean and beach below. With enough room to host at least 150 people, it's a favorite with the locals. By far one of my favorite places on Hawaii Island!
  • This is perfect for little kids who are not accustomed to the water. Like, when Hapuna Beach would be too much. Spencer Beach is very sheltered. There are some nice picnic areas, but there is not a lot else going on here. A lot of people camp really close together, so if you are thinking of camping here, keep that in mind. Your tent might be touching your neighbors.
  • Great beach, plenty can of parking, great for kids, nice BBQ area. Each out for Sea erchins on the rocky outcropping. I stepped on one and wow that hurt.
  • Safe swimming and snorkeling. Lots of picnic tables and shade. Busy on weekends and holidays.
