Big Island Beaches -- Wawaloli Beach Park

This is one of the best Big Island Beaches to catch some waves...or get away from high surf. Wawaloli Beach Park has pretty nice white sand and the water is always calm. There are large tidepools protected by rocks making it a perfect place for swimming and children.

If you want to see or ride some waves, the surf spot Pine Trees is down the road. You may even spot Shane Dorian, the world-class professional surfer from the Big Island of Hawaii, on his home turf.

Wawaloli Beach Park is maintained by the Natural Energy Lab of Hawaii and the Hawaii Ocean Science and Technology Park. It is located just north of the Kona airport.
