Kaunaoa Beach (Mauna Kea Beach) Information

Kaunaoa Beach (Mauna Kea Beach) Information

Kaunaoa Beach (also sometimes referred to as the Mauna Kea Beach) is a beautiful quarter mile crescent of golden sand at the foot of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.

There's a natural rock reef with two black lava points at each end protecting the small bay from the surf.

The shore slopes slightly towards the calm waters which provides perfect swimming, snorkeling, and boogie boarding conditions most of the year.

Coconut trees are nearby and there is a sand volleyball court off to one side. Colorful tropical fish, turtles, and even manta rays frequent the area, and there are restrooms and showers but no lifeguards on duty and limited parking spots available.

Turn left at mile marker 68 off Hwy. 19 north and follow the road to the end for public access parking.
