Enjoy the gentle waves on this golden sand crescent beach on the South Shore. Conditions are ideal for swimming, wading, surfing, snorkeling, or boogie boarding. Average annual rainfall is 34 inches—the Haupu Mountains block most showers. There are plenty of choices for lodging along the beach, from resorts to a county park.
