Need to pass a little time? If you can manage it, we recommend Kukio Bay.
Kukio Bay is home to a longer (for the Big Island), narrow beach, known for its sea turtle population and gorgeous sunsets. It’s typically a bit windy in the afternoons, but warm breezes aren’t all bad. Combine the soft sand, ocean friends, and clear blue coral seas, and we think it’s a great spot to relax and let a few minutes slip past.
