Hapuna Beach State Park

Virtual Tour

Overlooking Hapuna Beach and snorkelers.

One of the state’s prettiest beaches, this half-mile-long crescent of gently sloping golden sand is located between two posh resorts, Mauna Kea Beach Resort and Mauna Lani Resort on the Kohala coastline.

During the summer months the beach is about 200 feet wide and the clear blue water is excellent for swimming. Hapuna Beach has been rated the number one beach in America by Conde Nast Traveler magazine. Grassy areas provide plenty of places to relax.
