Aina Kaha Place, Kailua-Kona HI 96740
From Kailua Kona, drive north for about 14 miles (22.5 km) on Highway 19 (Queen Ka'ahumanu Hwy). Turn left at Kukio Nui Drive (located near mile marker 87). Visitors to the beach must first obtain a beach pass. At the gate on Palena Aina, press the call button and tell the guard you would like to drive to the beach. They will then direct you to the location of the guard house around the corner and give you the beach access pass. After getting the pass, follow the road until you reach the beach parking lot. Note: Since there are only 27 parking spaces, plan to come here early in the day and preferably on a weekday. Otherwise, the guards may not let you in if the parking lot is full. From the parking lot, it's a 5-minute walk to the beach on a paved path.
