Hapuna Beach State Park, Fabulous Big Island Sunsets
On the Big Island of Hawaii, Hapuna Beach is consistently called America’s most beautiful beach. Hapuna Beach is located in Hapuna Bay, at the north end of the beautiful Kohala Coast.
Hapuna Beach is the largest white sand beach on the island and is unbelievably beautiful. Hapuna Beach is about a half a mile long and 200 feet wide.
The beach faces almost directly towards the west, so you will almost always be treated to amazing sunsets.
There is excellent snorkeling to be found at the south end of the beach along the rocks. There are also some pretty cool lava tubes or cave to explore in the cliff side.
The body surfing’s pretty decent, especially when the wind picks up). Going on a weekday means less crowds and more room to explore on your own.
There’s a snack bar at the park entrance offering basic food choices, plus chair and umbrella rentals, which help protects you from the tropical sun.
Shade is minimal at the beach, so pay the $10 for two chairs and an umbrella, and enjoy your day. If it’s too windy, find yourself a shady area near the trees in the back.
