Beaches on the
Island of Hawaii

Map of HawaiiBeaches, after all, are one of the first things most people think of when they consider vacations to Hawaii. This list is simple and concise. It begins at the northern tip of the Island and goes counter clockwise around the island. Remember that most of these beaches have no lifeguard and many don't even have drinking water. The ocean is a great joy, but it can change from friend to foe in one breath. Treat it with respect, don't snorkel or boogie board where you don't see anyone else doing it (not counting young local guys who grew up on a boogie board!), and don't turn your back on the waves!
