Given the other reviews, I agree this beach is too small for spending a ton of time, but I must say I have to give it credit as it made for a picturesque sunset when we were in the area. If you are nearby when...More

Honl Beach Park Small park with sandy beach and lava rock … surfers love the area when the surf’s up. Snorkeling off the beach is excellent, but requires caution. Go into the ocean from the left side of the large rock outcrop (sandy area) as...More

While visiting the big island of Hawaii our family was staying at the Wyndham Kona Village Resort which is very close to Honl Beach. It's small, some sand, some rocks. Somewhat rough, but fun. There are trees there for shade and showers, restrooms and parking...More

This beach is small, but has showers, and easy access to the water via sand. Its a great place to surf or bodyboard. Private lessons are available across the street from the beach.

We've come here a couple of times on our vacation so far and enjoyed each time. It was very close to our hotel. Parking is easy and safe. There is a shower to rinse the salt water off of you with. The water seems safe...More

Great sunset photographs from here!!! There is a public bathroom and rinse-off showers on the mauka (land) side of Alii Drive. It has sand and many people walk down to get some sun here. You will also see a few surfers out in the ocean....More

Nice enough beach but too close to downtown which allows the homeless, druggies and alcoholics to gather. Better off driving (if you have a car) south on down Ali'i Drive to Pahoehoe Beach.

This is a nice little beach very close to Kona. However it's pretty rocky. I enjoy stopping here on my way to and from town to watch the surf. You can spot honu here as well. There are public bathrooms and a shower too.
