Kona Beach Guide

Kona Beach Guide

Favorite beaches of ours are Kikaua (our favorite), Mauna Kea, Hapuna. Kua bay is also nice. The beach is easy to get to driving north from Kailua-Kona area or south from the Waikoloa/Kohala area along Queen Kam. highway (the entrance is across from the Veteran's Cemetery). Arrive before 11 am. There is a lot of (paved) parking, but it fills up quickly and you may have to park further up the road, but they made a nice turnaround at the end for dropping off and picking up only.

(DLNR) has completed a new, approximately one and a half-mile long access road to Kua Bay and the Manini‘owali section of Kekaha Kai State Park. The park road, new parking areas at Kua Bay, new accessible comfort station and picnic tables, opened to the public in October 2005. In fact, the road is so new it is not reflected on most maps!

Located off the Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway (19) north of Kona between mile markers 88 and 89, Kua Bay offers a scenic white sand beach gently sloping down into the ocean. The turn off is opposite the entrance of West Hawaii Veteran's Cemetery. The beauty of this white sand beach and light blue waters is breathtaking - this is one of the prettiest beaches on the Island. There are no trees or shade. During calm conditions, the swimming and snorkeling are excellent and easy. Facilities include showers, drinking fountains, picnic tables, and restrooms. From the parking area you will need to traverse over rough lava rocks to get to the beach below.
