This idyllic white-sand beach is backed by a pleasant grassy area and is one of the Big Island’s nicest beaches. Palm trees and lava rocks surround this family-friendly beach, and a protected inlet area has shallow water where kids often play.
Swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing.
Views of Maui and Mauna Kea volcano add to the delight of this lovely crescent-shaped beach. The turquoise water and white sand surrounded by lava make this pretty beach very popular for Big Island weddings.
