Diving and snorkeling are unbeatable at this salt and pepper sand beach. The historical King's Trail runs through two acres of petroglyphs, rock shelters, and ancient sites. Much of the water is protected from strong surf by the offshore reef, which creates a safe and calm swimming area.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This beach is fairly well-protected by an offshore reef, which makes it good for swimming, snorkeling, and diving.
  • Walk inland to see the ancient Hawaiian fish pond. There are educational plaques and this is a nice photo spot--but don't swim or fish in the pond.
  • The historical King's Trail runs nearby, winding through two acres of petroglyphs--some of the best on the island can be viewed from this trail. There's also a trail that connects the beach to the Hilton Waikoloa.
