Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area Reviews & Ratings

  • This is easily the best beach in the whole island I'm my opinion. It is big, family-and kids-friendly. The wanted ain't bad at all. The sand is fine and easy on the feet. The whole area is meat and beautiful. I will recommend saving yourself time and spending most of your beaching here.

  • The beach is big enough to accommodate many people. There are public showers and bathrooms. Also it's clean. Many people barbecue there. There is a lot of parking but you have to pay a small amount if you aren't a resident. Surf is usually small and safe there except occasionally in the winter time. Grew up going there and Spencer beach park. Lots of fun.

  • Nice, white sandy beach. OK snorkeling, but better for swimming and relaxing. Many covered areas with picnic tables on hillside overlooking the clear blue water. Equipment and umbrella rentals available. Lunch food also available including huge shaved ice. Ample parking.

  • We only arrived here in the evening, but it was a beautiful and calm beach to enjoy as a family. Compared to the other beaches we visited during our stay, this was the least rocky (which is good when you have children or not very skilled swimmers in your group). Waves were not too strong compared with the other beaches, so it was very chill. There are rinse off showers available, as well as bathrooms and comfortable changing stations.

  • One of my favorite beaches on the entire island! The $5 admission fee per vehicle for non-residents is well worth it. Be sure to arrive early to get a good spot on either side with some shade. Usually some very good snorkeling near the rocks. Gets a little crowded on weekends and holidays but still very enjoyable. Showers and bathrooms are very clean.
