Fodor's Review

Towering coconut trees provide some shade and lend a touch of tropical beauty to this pretty little beach park (also called La'aloa), which may well be the Big Island's most intriguing stretch of sand. A migratory beach of sorts, it can disappear in winter, when waves wash away the small white-sand parcel (hence the name "Magic Sands"). In summer, the beach re-forms; you'll know you've found it when you see the body- and board surfers. Just south of Anthony's by the Sea

Restaurant, this is a popular summer hangout for young locals. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing.
