Beach by Kona Reef

I understand that there is a small beach next to the Kona Reef. Does anyone know anything about it?

Great video! I'd note that winter surf makes it very iffy.

I am right down the street from that beach, when the surf is up you can see lots of wonderful rides. If the surf is not up and it is not the weekend it can be quiet. This used to be a fairly unknown beach that residents used until the complex across the street was developed and they "improved" the beach for more public use by cleaning it up a little and making parking spaces.. there is more to the story but I am not sure what is truth and what is gossip, TT will know the difference.

the beach "has sand."...till you get to the waterline where it becomes rocky... The beach proper slopes steeply in the the water and has a seawall about 15 ft from the water

It has an offshore reef that is great for diving.. but this same reef causes a pretty good surf conditon.

There is a restroom and shower across the street... Parking is great.. Mostly used by local surfers.

It is a lying on and looking at beach It is not a swimming, wading or snorkel beach.

Closest one of those is 1 mile north at the King Kam Hotel.... which has a public beach
