Full Description
Kuki'o Beach can be accessed through Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu via a short walk. Or, you can park (limited spots available) at the end of the unnamed road that leads up to the beach which is very close to our map pinpoint on the north end of the beach.

The shoreline makes it difficult to enter the water, especially on the north side. The best access is at the south end of the beach which also has a nice, and well protected, bay. If the ocean is calm this can be a good area to do some snorkeling as well. The sand is soft and white, and you may even see a turtle relaxing on the sloped shoreline.

Kukio Beach is another amazing on the Big Island's Kona side. Very pretty with amazing blue waters. A great place to relax and, if the ocean is calm, a fun place to swim.

This is the high rent neighborhood, and the homes that line these beaches are multi-million dollar estates. And these beaches are priceless. Now if you're staying at or visiting the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu, I'd recommend walking to the left (facing the ocean) and keep on going for a 15-minute walk. You'll come upon a beautiful beach that fronts some amazing homes.

The sand is soft and white, and you're likely to see a turtle relaxing on the sloped shoreline. If you continue your walk further, you'll come across a private little cove at the south end. It's more secluded and my favorite part of this area. Great spot for sunbathing snorkeling, and playing in the water. Shhh. Don't tell anyone about this area.

This beach is what I'd consider an adults beach. Not a lot of kids running around here. It's like a fine wine, enjoyed mainly by the big kids.
