This lovely beach is on the northernmost portion of the stretch of coastline that comprises Kekaha Kai State Park. A paved entrance, amenties, and parking lot making it very accessible, and, as a result, often crowded. This is one of the most beautiful bays you'll ever see—the water is crystal clear, deep aquamarine, and peaceful in summer. The beach comprises fine white sand that sits amid black lava with little shade—bring umbrellas as it can get hot. Rocky shores on either side protect the beach from winds in the afternoon. The gates close daily at 7 pm. The surf can get very rough in winter. Amenities: parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; swimming.
