North of Kona Airport along Highway 19 at mile marker 94, HI 96740
Pine Trees Beach is located south of the Kona airport just off of Highway 19. Getting to the beach requires a 4WD vehicle. Take the road just south of mile marker 94. This road is paved and leads to the Wawaloli tide pools, which is another popular barbecue site. To continue to Pine Trees Beach, make a left turn where the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii road leads to a “T” in the road (the paved part continues to the right). Continue for about a mile. There's no parking lot, but it's safe to park along the road or between the trees.
