Close to Hapuna Beach. Plenty of trees, rope swings and some decent snorkeling. Have to pay to park.

Also called "Beach 69", this beach has plenty of shade, rope swings, decent snorkeling and places to jump off rocks into the water. Must pay to park.

If you take the turn off for Hapuna and instead of turning into Hapuna on the right, you continue and go straight, you will come to Beach 69. If you park inside the parking area with a rental car, it is again $5. It is small and quaint with lots of shade. On a calm day it has great snorkeling

This is one of the prettiest beaches on the Kona Side, but kind of hidden. Take the Hapuna Beach exit off the highway, but turn left before you get to the parking lot for Hapuna. Follow single lane road for about 1/2 mile. This beach is shady, has a couple picnic tables, white sand, and gorgeous water. LESS crowds than Hapuna beach and no entrance fee. Has outdoor shower and clean restrooms. Hapuna is over hyped, NO SHADE, and so crowded.....Plus they make you pay $5 to park there. Skip Hapuna and try Waialea Bay (also known as 69 Beach). Great snorkeling too!

Also known as "Beach 69," this is one of our favorite beaches. There is usually a shady spot to be found, and it is often breezy, but somewhat protected. Watch out for kiawe thorns!
