Hapuna in Kona – This beach has beautiful white sand with lots of room to swim, surf, and suntan. Try surfing, boogie boarding, or sit back and enjoy the natural, peaceful sounds of the ocean. It is ideal for the first time surfer or the more advanced. There is also a lifeguard on duty.
Punalu’u in Ka’u – Another incredible option (or you can spend longer and do both) is the beautiful black sands of Punalu’u. Located on the southeastern part of the Big Island it is ideal for nature lovers as well as surfers. The waves tend to be a little more prominent here, but the sea turtles are more abundant in this bay. Usually, this tour goes to one location as it lasts about 6 hours. If you are on a shore excursion from Kona, we recommend Hapuna Beach.
