Spend the day relaxing and exploring tide pools while planes fly right overhead.

Located just south of Kailua-Kona International Airport, Wawaloli Beach is a hidden gem that many tourists miss completely on the way out of the airport.  

To get there just simply turn into the Natural Energy Lab on Makako Bay Dr from Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway (HI19). About a mile down the road is beach front parking and a small lot.  

There are grills and picnic tables available to use. Many people like to come out to grill and have dinner during the sunset. It is a great place to sit back and watch the waves crash against the cool rock formations as the sun ducks below the horizon.

This area is also great for long exposure photography of the waves coming in. You can get great smooth water shots pretty much everyday. During sunset the light is usual low enough to get great images, but it may help to keep a lens filter on you.
