Located at the Natural Energy Lab of Hawaii (NELHA) on Keahole Point.
Great views of the Kona Coast and Hualalai Mountain. Large tide pool
surrounded by lava rock wall forming a shallow wading area for keikis
(kids), otherwise not particularly good swimming. Be careful of slippery
rocks if walking in the water. Caution: High surf with strong current and
dangerous shore break beyond the break wall, swimming not advised
here.

One of the few beaches with lifeguards. Sandy and rocky areas. At times
of high surf the sand disappears making the area too dangerous to enter.
At times of low surf, an offshore sandbar is present making for good
swimming and boogie boarding. Easy ocean access, large fish and
underwater caves make for great snorkeling and diving. Great spot for
family outings.
