Description: There are several beaches on the west side of the harbor; Hale o Lono Beach, Kanalukaha Beach, Kapukuwahine Beach, Kahalepohaku Beach and there is Halena Beach on the east side.
Cautions: Dangerous when winter surf is up, usually safe for swimming in the summer unless there is a south swell running. Exercise caution year-round.
Location: Follow Maunaloa Highway (460) to Maunaloa town. Take the first right, just past the Lodge, and follow the road forever. Okay, not quite forever, it’s about 7 miles and the unpaved road is sometimes in poor shape, so drive slowly and be alert for major potholes and washboard conditions.
