This lovely sandy beach is located just north of Honokohau Harbor, the same location as Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park
. The water here is protected by offshore reefs, so swimming is usually safe even for children.Many turtles often feed on the grasses growing in the cloudy water of this cove. In ancient times, this natural fishpond was well utilized as fish swam in during high tide and could not get out during low tide. Today few people visit this area making it a perfect retreat for an afternoon swim and picnic.
Take Highway 19 north of Kona and turn left between Mile Markers # 97 and 98. This road leads to the Honokohau Harbor. Bear to the right and go to the north parking lot. Take the short trail to the beach.
