Kikaua Beach is a little piece of paradise, a cove filled with white sand and lined by a beautiful palm tree park. Located 12 miles north of Kailua-Kona along the Kohala Coast, Kikaua is one of our favorite family-friendly beaches. Parents and non-swimmers alike will appreciate the calm water in the protected bay and the soft sandy bottom, making this a perfect swim beach for kids of all ages.
Directions :
Access to Kikaua is 12 miles north of Kailiua-Kona, between the 87 and 88 mile markers. Turn onto Kuki'o Nui Drive before (south of) the Hualalai Resort entrance on Highway 19. Follow the road to the parking area.
There are only 27 parking spaces at Kikaua. Since this is a gated community, just tell the guards at the gate you are going to the beach.

Average beach, but you go here for the TURTLES. Arrive early, because Kuki'o is a resort and there is limited parking. When it runs out, you can't get in. The turtles eat the limue on the rocks in front of the resort area of the beach and often will come out and sleep on the sand. Remember it is illegal to approach them!

Billionaire's beach.  Only about 28 parking spaces for general public. Go early in the morning to get a spot. A mom favorite due to bathrooms, grass, and shade. Stop at guard gate, get your numbered parking pass, turn back around, turn right thru gate after buzzing the security gate. Security guard can help you on this.

3 miles from the house, this quiet cove beach often has sea turtles sunning themselves on the shore. This is a private beach so you will never be crowded but instead will feel like a local enjoying this special spot. I'll give you the insiders scoop on how and when you will be able to get in.
