going > kua bay & manini’owali beach

Rummaging through Hawaii pictures as we inch closer to winter and found this beauty.


This area is an easy 30 min drive from Kailua-Kona just 15 min past the airport. It had plenty of people on a Saturday but was still not crowded. Decent amount of space to lay out, get some sun, and bob around in the very blue postcard worthy water.

There’s a small parking lot but most people end up parking on the street coming into the beach. There are decent bathroom facilities just up from the beach. Like most of Kailua there are plenty of sharp lava rocks here and there so make sure to bring adequate footwear.
