White Sand Beach, Kailua-Kona

Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Dig your toes in (if you can!) at White Sand Beach, famous for its disappearing sand. Whenever large storms blow in, winds carry away the sand and leave behind only lava rock. That won't spoil your visit, however: the sea returns the sand, clean and good as new each time. While not large, this piece of shoreline remains popular with water sport enthusiasts who come to surf, body surf, or body board in the playful waves. For a special treat, look into snorkeling with sea turtles. Using our world travel planner, Kailua-Kona attractions like White Sand Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
