Kua Bay Beach Park, Hawai'i (Big Island)

Kua Bay Beach Park - Hawai'i (Big Island), Hawaii
Kua Bay Beach Park
Northeast of Makani EkaPlace & Maniniowali Drive, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740Map
Neighborhood: Waikoloa

This little known beach (its full Hawaiian name is Manini'owali) is gaining popularity, so much so that the road from the highway has been paved, and showers and washrooms have been installed. After scrambling over some awkward lava rocks, your efforts will be rewarded with this small but idyllic crescent sandy beach offering crystal clear waters. During the summertime snorkeling is wonderful, and body surfers and boogie boarders enjoy the winter waves. Beware: there is little to no shade here, and on weekends and holidays it can become overcrowded. Located north of Kona across from the Veteran's Cemetery.
