My husband and I recently visited the Big Island and decided to stay in Kona again. There were a few beaches that we didn't have a chance to visit on our first trip and Kua Bay happened to be on that list. All I can say is wow!!! The sand feels like powdered sugar on your feet, the water is extremely clear, and it wasn't overly crowded with visitors. There's restrooms nearby, showers to rinse off, and picnic tables as well. We will definitely return!
