Kikaua beach

. There are several beautiful limited-access public beaches on the Kona Coast (restricted by the number of available parking spaces). The best ones are at the Mauna Kea resort, north of Hapuna Beach State Park, and at Kikaua, just south of the Hualalai resort (take Kukio Nui Road about five miles north of the airport). You have to check in at the guard house, obtain a parking pass, and display the pass in your car window. Since the parking lots fill up early (especially on holiday weekends), plan to go early or late in the day -- it's worth it.
