Hapuna Beach is the best sandy beach on the Big Island. Really there are not too many of them.
The beach is very large so even on a busy day you can still find a place to sit close the the water.
Plenty of amenities...More
Unfortunately, the friend we were with doesn't do well in the heat and doesn't enjoy going to the beach. As a result, three of us sat at a concrete bench partway down the hill while only my husband went down to see the sandy stretch...More
Great beach. Plenty of space on the beach. Plenty of parking ($5/car). Very clean with great amenities. Great beach for boogie-boarding. You can rent umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards for $10 for each for the day. We spent most of the day boogie-boarding.
Our family spent a day here and really enjoyed it. I’d recommend an late morning arrival as it does fill up. So glad they had umbrella rentals. The $10 fee for all day felt reasonable for the Big Island.
We were looking for a little more wave action and this beach was ideal! It is $5 to park (public beach, no resorts) and it is quite large. Perfect for boogie boarding. The sand was also perfectly white, soft and great for building sand castles....More

There are multiple paths without steps that wind down the hill to the beach from the car park. There is designated parking close to the paths but it’s a bit of a walk/roll down to the beach. You can’t drive down. I didn’t walk the length of the beach so I can’t answer with certainty, but I didn’t see wheelchair path access across the sand to the water.

$5.00 for non-Hawaii residents to enter park. I believe you can rent about anything—umbrellas, chairs, snorkel gear. I didn’t go up to the rental shed myself, but there were plenty of people coming back with beach stuff.
