The Big Island of Hawai'i has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Many of the beaches have black sand, a result of volcanic eruptions in years past. The resort's beach features white sand and is located beside the South Tower. The beach offers a protected swimming lagoon. There are no life guards on duty, swimming is at your own risk. Beach gear can be rented on-site.

Beach Expert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The Fairmont is set on 32 oceanfront acres. In addition to 540 rooms, the resort has tennis courts, golf, an outdoor "spa without walls," five restaurants, a children's program, and a 10,000-square-foot pool.
  • Most afternoons you can see green sea turtles basking in the sunny warmth of the hotel's beach. Look—but don't harass them in any way.
  • Love action? The Activity Package offers unlimited access to sports, such as surfing lessons, snorkeling, seaside yoga, petroglyph hikes, tennis clinics, and more. Romantic? With the Romance Package add-on you'll have orchid petals scattered from your door ending in a heart shape on your bed, floating candles for the bath, tropical massage lotion, champagne, and chocolate-dipped strawberries.
