Kona’s Best Beaches
From your Kona oceanfront rental, you won’t be far from some of Kona’s best beaches. Spend the day lounging along the shore or participating in water activities from some of these top Kona beaches!
King Kam Beach
This beach situated right within the heart of downtown Kona is also known as Kamakahonu Beach or Kids’ Beach. It is the perfect spot to cool off after you have spent some time exploring the sights and activities of Kona. Situated on Ali’i Drive right between the Kailua pier and the King Kamehameha hotel, this convenient location makes it popular with local families and visitors alike. While the sandy shoreline is somewhat small, this is a great beach for enjoying active time in the water. Thanks to the calm, clear water here, snorkeling, and kayaking are two popular activity options. An onsite Kona Boys beach rental gear shop makes snorkeling or paddling even more convenient. For snorkeling, head out of the bay to the right to avoid boat traffic. This beach tends to get busy due to its downtown location, but the calm turquoise waters make it a pleasant place for families who are spending some time in downtown Kona.
Located approximately 12 miles from Kona, it will take just a short drive to reach this Marine Life Conservation District. The water here is crystal clear, especially during morning hours. Thanks to its designation as a conservation area, you will swim and snorkel alongside a wide variety of tropical fish species. Spinner dolphins and green sea turtles are also known to frequent this area, making it a great place to spot marine life.
Located just north of the Kona airport, Makalawena Beach is a slice of paradise for those willing to put in the effort to get there. Reaching this golden sand beach requires a two-mile hike. This is deterring enough for many to keep it a pristine, secluded beach that will richly reward those who decide to venture the full length. At the end, you will discover a pristine stretch of shoreline surrounded by rugged lava rock. This is ideal for beachgoers who are looking to escape the crowds and enjoy a slice of paradise to yourselves. When the water is calm, swimming, bodyboarding, and snorkeling can all be enjoyed from Makalawena Beach. Be sure to bring along anything you will need for your beach day, as there are no amenities onsite.
