Owner description: Hawaii beach with white sand and good surf.
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We visited this beach twice during our two week stay. It was so close to town that it was easy for us to get to. There is good parking across the street if the main lot is full. Nice size waves for boogy boards. Lots of little kids having fun. Some snorkeling off to the right side, but pretty big waves for novice snorkeler. There was a life guard on duty both days.
Head south on Alii Drive about 15 minutes from main harbour.

The beach was there this year. In past years the beach gets washed away with a big surf. We were there in early February and it was just starting to wash away by the 5th.

One of the most stunning. Beaches on a sunny day! You might even see a humpback whale like I did!

A big turtle was beached here and allowed me to take some close-up shots of him. I watched his friend or mate or enemy lol unsuccessfully beach beside him. Not a swimming beach but a nice serene beach.

AKA Magic Sand, Disappearing Sands, La'aloa Beach Park. Sand sometimes not there but there was plenty of nice sand and lots of people in Jan/Feb. There is a lifeguard but this is not a safe swimming beach. People were boogie boarding and most were getting pounded in the big, rough surf. Restrooms, some shade. Limited parking.
