Owner description: Hawaii beach with white sand and good surf.
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This is a very nice beach. There is some tricky currents towards the north end. Waves can be big but there are life guards. While I was there a middle aged lady was assisted out of the water by two by standers by the time the lifeguards got down to that end. Not sure what the issue was. There are some rocks so boogie boarders and body surfers will need to watch for that. One young woman was simply knocked down by a wave and scraped her knee badly on a rock at the edge of the water. Some really nice shaded areas,restrooms, sand volleyball court and located right on allii drive. Parking is parallel by the beach or a public parking area just a little ways from the beach. Beautiful clear water and white sand.

I've visited this lovely beach many times over the last 3 years. The beach can be fully white sand or huge black rocks depending on how many storms have visited. I love it either way. The waves can be huge so listen to the lifeguards and if you are unsure of your ability do not go in.
I've seen so many large middle aged people get totally tumbled as they do not have a lot of stability on their legs. Do not wear your prescription glasses in.
Looks like they have renamed the beach La'aloa.

We read about this little beach in one of our travel books. It was a great little beach that was mostly populated by locals. Great for boogie boarding and casual hanging out. It's a little difficult to find, even though it's right off the main road, but it's worth it!

Love it. So pretty. But we didnt have change to swim. The surf was too strong. Didnt see much white sand. Cuz the water was all over. But it was really relaxing to watch the beach with turquoise water, blue sky.
