White Sands Beach Information

White Sands Beach Information

The Kona Coast's small White Sands Beach is also called Magic Sands, Disappearing Sands, or La'aloa Bay Beach. This grey sand beach with a rocky shore is one of the few West Hawaii ones with lifeguards.

Conditions are excellent for swimming and boogie boarding when the shallow, offshore sandbar is around, but that protection disappears during high surf and the water becomes choppy and dangerous.

The sand and rocks of the beach itself sometimes disappear from view during high tide or storms (thus one of its nicknames), but in calmer weather, it serves as an excellent place to swim, snorkel, or scuba dive to explore the underwater caves and large colorful fish.

Children learn how to surf in the slow and gentle summer swells at Magic Sands, and expert surfers gather there during winter months when the waves are bigger. The park also includes restrooms, showers, parking, a sand volleyball court, picnic facilities, and lifeguards.

To get to White Sands Beach on Alii Dr., take Hwy. 11 south from Kailua-Kona and look for the rocky shore just before mile marker 4.
