BIG ISLAND BEACHAneho'omalu Bay
This salt and pepper sand beach is located on the ocean side of the Outrigger Waikoloa Resort. Besides being a beautiful resort area, the historical King’s Trail runs nearby and there are over 2-acres of petroglyphs, rock shelters, trails and ancient sites scattered throughout the area. This lovely beach is perfect for swimming, diving and snorkeling and is fairly well protected from strong surf due to the offshore reef. Inland from the beach is a large ancient Hawaiian fishpond. The pond was used for raising mullet for the royalty and ali’i of the times. The pond is ringed by beautiful palm trees and makes for a picturesque sunset photo opportunity. There are also educational plaques along the trail surrounding the pond area. A shoreline trail leads between resort hotels and extends from the Outrigger Waujikia all the way to the Hilton Waikoloa. This long and beautiful trail winds among lava, sand, coral and tidepools. Numerous resort facilities are available here including rentals, restaurants and a canoe club. DIRECTIONS: Take Highway 19 north from Kona toward the Kohala Resort Area. Turn left at Mile Marker #76. Turn left at the road across from Kings’ Shops. Parking for the beach is at the end of this road.
