Kekaha Kai State Park—Kua Bay Side

Kekaha Kai State Park—Kua Bay Side Review

This lovely beach is on the northernmost stretch of the park's coastline on an absolutely beautiful bay. The water is crystal clear, deep aquamarine, and peaceful in summer, but the park's paved entrance, amenities, and parking lot make it very accessible and, as a result, often crowded. Fine white sand sits amid black lava with little shade—bring umbrellas as it can get hot. Rocky shores on either side protect the beach from winds in the afternoon. Gates close daily at 7 pm. In winter, surf can get very rough and often the sand washes away. Amenities: parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; swimming.
