Ka'upulehu Beach

Ka'upulehu Beach, Big Island

Ka'upulehu Beach is located near the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island's Kohala Coast. It is a sandy beach, but since it has a lava bench, the swimming conditions are poor. There is only a small sandy area in front of the Kona Village Resort (which is closed indefinitely after sustaining extensive damage in the tsunami on March 11, 2011, which was generated by an earthquake in Japan).
