And you have keawakapu. The sand is a deep orange, some of the softest you will ever set foot on. There is a decent surf spot towards the southern portion. With views of Molokini, Kahoolawe, and Lanai, the sunsets here are unforgettable.

This was a very quiet beach with great waves and it was not as crowded as the other beaches that we visited. We were able to enjoy the serenity of the location. The family and I will definitely visit again.

We travel to the island often and find this beach mellow and a good walking beach. Easy to connect with the locals who walk their dogs. Surf not too rough, clean, and the long happy hour at the Mana Kai (on the end of the...More

Not sure which shave ice stand you mean, but I don't remember one within walking distance to Keawakapu. It is a bit of a walk from Kamaole 3 for instance, doable for a grownup but hard with kids or carrying beach gear... More
