Beaches

Why else do you come to Hawai’i? Sun and sand!
If you are looking for the big white sandy beach... this is the one. $5 to park (sometimes), has restrooms, showers, pavilions and lots of powdery white sand and decent waves to play in.

Very nice and very close white sand beach with good waves. It is also called Majic Sands because the sand can disappear overnight and turn to boulders. Has a great little espresso and snack bar next to the restaurant.

Great beach walking distance from the condo, close to the house. Well sheltered from the waves for a great snorkeling experience. The north side of the cove has great waves for beginning surfing. There is also a surf shop across the street for rentals!
