Pebble Beach

Pebble Beach, Big Island

Located on the Big Island's Kona Coast, Pebble Beach gets its name from the black lava pebbles that line its coast, creating a unique and attractive landscape. The beach is home to a rich marine ecosystem. Just below the surface, there is a wide array of ridges, pinnacles and reefs, all teeming with fish and other native marine life. Some of these ridges lead to steep drop-offs.

Even though this sounds like the perfect snorkeling or diving spot, the shorebreak is treacherous here and strong currents are almost always present. The beach is also not the best place to sit down for a picnic because there is no sand and the pebbles can get quite hot during mid-day and are not too comfortable to sit on. But it's still an interesting place to visit to listen to the surf wash ashore and toss the pebbles around.
