If you're in Waikoloa Village and you want to walk to a beach (or take a very short drive and park in the Kings' Shops parking lot, going to the beach here makes sense. Unless you're staying at the Marriott resort, you'll need to carry/bring...More

It's an okay beach with rocky sand, tourist boats parked in the middle of it, cloudy water, and a rocky barrier not too far into the water. Pretty views, but certainly not my favorite beach to play on.

Went nightly for sunset to either enjoy a cocktail at Lava Lava Beach Club and to watch sunset or to sit on the beach and enjoy a beautiful Chardonnay with a spectacular sunset. Also enjoyed swimming and relaxing at this great little beach area.

Great place for chilling on the beach, renting for water sports, and there’s food nearby. There are bathrooms nearby as well. This beach is always a bit busy but it’s easy to walk a bit farther for some privacy.

Nice, pretty beach, calm water, great for swimming, but not for boogie- boarding or snorkeling. Sand is coarse, a little rougher than most for walking barefoot.

I love this bay for sun bathing or snorkeling. And many times you will find sea turtles sun bathing on the shore. If you walk south (away from the hotel(s)) you can find lots of little "private" beaches along the way.

A-Bay, as it is referred to, is conveniently located within Waikoloa near the Marriott and Hilton. There is a long stretch of beach, but it is a bit narrow. There is a mall reef just off the shoreline which is good for snorkeling, however the...More

We are staying at the Cole Leah condos which enter into the same beach as the Marriott Waikoloa Beach club. It does get busy during peak season but it is a nice place to hang out watch the sunset or just relax.

This was our third beach while on the Big Island. We went with 2 teenage daughters. It was a great beach for young families as the water was very calm (no waves). Beach was a bit too uncomfortable for one of the teenagers liking for...More

I do not believe you can on the beach, I don't recall seeing anyone doing so. There is a grocery in the mall coming to the beach. Great fresh foods that will satisfy for sure.
