Mauʻumae Beach

Mauʻumae Beach information

Lonely Planet review

This beautiful beach boasts white sand, shady trees and protected waters – and feels even more private and local than Kaunaʻoa Bay. Locals are proprietary about this gem (for good reason) so don't overstep your welcome.

To get here, go toward the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, turn right on Kamahoi and cross two wooden bridges. Look for telephone pole No 22 on the left and park (you'll probably see a bunch of cars parked). Walk down the trail to the Ala Kahakai sign and turn left toward the beach. You can also get here from nearby Spencer Beach by walking 10 minutes on the Ala Kahakai Trail , an ancient coastal path.
