The beach is central to any vacation in the Hawaiian Islands, and first-time visitors may be a little perplexed when they first arrive on the Big Island. On first glance, tourists would be forgiven for thinking that there are no ‘real beaches’ on the island. The good news is, beaches are here – you just have to know how to find them.
Finding the best Big Island beach depends a great deal on what you value. Some vacationers prefer facilities over seclusion, while others are willing to hike two or three miles just to escape the crowds.
