Matt Anderson's Take
Mauna Lani Beach is located at the Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection. This is a man-made beach that was made for this hotel but, like all beaches in Hawaii, is open to the public as well. The beach is protected by a reef and is good for snorkeling and swimming.

For parking, use the beach access and parking area which is a 15 minute walk away from the beach. To find the lot, turn onto Mauna Lani Drive from Ka'ahumanu Highway (Hwy 19). Take the second exit at the roundabout to stay on Mauna Lani Drive. You'll pass The Shops at Mauna Lani on your right, then make the first left onto Pauoa Road. Shortly after you do, you'll make a right into the parking lot. You'll see a sign that reads "Historic Park Shoreline Access". There are around 20 parking spots here so go early for best luck in getting a spot.

Pretty beach with many turtles that frequent the shore. It is protected from large waves so safe for families. Snorkeling isn't great here but paddle boarding or launching a kayak is fine. Caters to the hotel and bungalow guests.

A great hotel beach for sure. You may not come driving here just for this beach but if you're staying nearby it's a wonderful option that's easy to access and generally safe since it's so well protected from any big wave action.

A well maintained, top notch resort beach. The hotel is perfectly situated to the beach. It's all about convenience for hotel guests. This is Big Island luxury vacationing at it's best.

The beach is located a few steps away from the Mauna Lani pool. Not exactly a true tropical Big Island beach, but a safe place for families to enjoy a few hours to play in the water. Sipping on a cocktail overlooking the ocean - what could be better? The surroundings are absolutely lovely - great walking paths, fish ponds, and sandy beaches.
