Kanaio Beach

Kanaio Beach provides an idyllic sanctuary, stretching for almost a mile along the Pacific Ocean. Its golden sands and clear waters create an entrancing ambiance, making this beach an ideal retreat for those seeking peace.

Kanaio Beach may lack extensive amenities, yet still provides visitors with an exciting array of activities. Situated within Malaekahana State Campground, guests can engage in various aquatic pursuits like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and fishing; though please exercise caution as Kanaio's waters can be rough; lifeguards are not on duty here.

Kanaio Beach adds an air of adventure to any trip, as its reach requires either hiking or navigating an unpaved road. A small free parking area serves as a starting point, while nearby attractions, such as La Perouse Bay, Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve and panoramic views from Kaupo Gap all add charm.
