Good beach

Good beach. Very family friendly. Not big waves so little kids can play. There is the Lava Lava beach club steps away so the experience can last all day

I used to visit A-beach for its paradise-like look, especially at sunset from behind the fish ponds. After a big storm some years ago, however, many palm trees are gone. Although much of the lost sand has been replaced, the former uniqueness is widely lost. When swimming, watch for a dead coral barrier that stretches over most of the beach.... More

This beach is in a very calm bay, almost like a big swimming pool. It's very sandy and shallow, which is perfect for little kids. It did get a bit windy, which made snorkeling a bit murky. There are fish to be seen, though, so bring your snorkel gear. If you want to paddle board, you should try and bring... More

This beach is great for those that enjoy a long walk as it is rather long. The entrance is between the crowded side ( next to the Marriott) and the quiet side - head left & you'll feel like you were alone! It boasts some of the best sunsets on the island. Snorkelling is ok as long as the ocean... More

We love this beach. It has a reasonably long protected beach of off white sand that is easy on the feet and the ocean is usually calm enough for enjoyable swimming and snorkeling. Perhaps most appealing is that the beach has many free lounge chairs and shade from numerous palm trees, a very nice bathroom and a beach toy rental... More

If your looking to snorkeling head to Kona. The beach and Mauna Kea (you can hike between beaches) are pretty with nice sand, but not very protected from the wind or surf. If you just want to sun bathe and jump in the water to swim, it is fine. There is ample room for some beach sports too. I will... More

We sat in the provided beach chairs, enjoyed using the beach toys. The staff at the beach hut were so wonderful. The sand is beautiful.

We've been travelling to Hawaii every year for the past 8 years and A-Bay is still our favourite sunset destination. You can almost always find sea turtles hanging out at sunset and always able to take great pictures.

Nice enough beach of an ok standard in that more than good enough but not great. Hired paddle boards which was great. Nothing really to see snorkelling. Had a shop which was useful also a hire place for kayaks, paddle boards and other things. Would try another beach next time to compare.
