off Highway 19, North West Hawaii
This is another wonderful sandy beach, 1/2 mile long and almost 200 feet wide during the summer months. Swimming conditions here are usually excellent. This beach has frequently been voted as the best beach in the US.
There is easy access to the water, full facilities, crystal clear water and beautiful scenery. Snorkeling is great at the south end of the beach where the fish are varied and there is a coral reef.
Limited shade but beautiful greenery surrounds the area. During the summer months the ocean is usually calm and the sand beach is long and wide. Lifeguards are occasionally on duty.
A-frame tent cabins available
Lifeguard sometimes on duty
