Mahaiula Bay

Mahaiula Bay is located in the Kona area just north of the Kona airport. It features picturesque views of a white sand bay with palms trees scattered along the coast.


Best for families with older children and/or adventurous families/couples.


Great for  sunset sessions!

This beach features some of the natural elements below:

  • white sand

  • bay views

  • palm trees

  • lava fields

Other things to note about this location:

  • road to beach is mostly unpaved making it a bumpy ride down, although 4x4 is NOT required

  • Only porta-potties available  

  • Beach is a little hike from the parking, about 10 minutes, but well worth it!

  • This location is not available during summer when the sun sets later (past 6:30) because they close the gate to beach at 7:00 pm regardless of what time the sun sets, and we won't have time to get out of the gate before guards close it.
