The Best Beach in all of West Hawaii is Mauna Kea
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel has the best beach in all of West Hawaii hands down. Ask anybody. I can say that as a person who has swam at practically every single beach there is near Kona. The beach is white sugar sand, and it continues into the water as far as you can walk. The water is turquoise and a dozen shades of aqua, as well as warm and inviting.
At one point, Josh pointed to a dark spot in the water. Was it a honu? I swam after it, but it seemed to move. All of a sudden, my mind went to the turtle images Laura Dern conjured in the HBO series Enlightened.
There were not very many people on the beach, either. Our afternoon at the best beach in all of West Hawaii was absolutely perfect. Sure, I could have been cleaning the house or doing laundry or working on a blog, but I’d rather be at the beach. At the best beach in all of West Hawaii, I lounged on an oversized towel and chatted with a few clients on my cell. Where else in the world can you sell real estate in Sacramento when you’re sitting on the beach in Hawaii?
Jump in for a brisk swim or just float on your back. Life just doesn’t get any better than this. After swimming, we enjoyed a delicious lunch of salads and fish. Then we jumped into the water again. I also strolled the grounds of the Mauna Kea Hotel to find the 12th century buddha brought there by developer Laurance S. Rockefeller himself in 1965.
Below are photos from our afternoon. In a few, you can spot buyer’s agent Josh Amolsch and Vika carting boogie boards or lying in the sun. All of the resort beaches in Hawaii are open to the public.
