Surf Spots on the Big Island
- Big Island Surf Beaches
Kailua-Kona Surf Spots
A great place to learn or
get better. Just south of downtown Kona, down past Magic Sands. From the
wall you can check out the break points and get familiar with the rocks
and currents. A good place to take a surf!
South of Kailua-Kona about
3.5 miles is Banyans, look for the Banyan Mart. Mostly you''ll find the
locals and veteran surfers.
In between Magic Sands and
Kahaluu Beach Park area you'll find left breaking waves. A short walk along
the shore will get you to the break. A shower found across the road, for
after session rinse.
Rocks, sea urchins and more
rocks. From downtown go south on Ali'i about 1/4 mile from the Royal Kona.
Closest surf spot to town for quick go out!
Another beginner or learning
to surf spot. Go North on Highway 19 out of Kailua-Kona, towards
the airport. Take a left when you see a sign that says NATURAL ENERGY LAB,
follow down to a gravel road and take another left. Follow on down
to the beach area. A rugged vehicle is recommended!
