17 Best Family Beaches in Hawaii

Hawaii, commonly called Big Island, is the largest island in the state of the same name, but its beaches are often ignored in favor of those on the other islands due to its smaller population.

In spite of this, it is not without wonder and does have a large selection of beaches that are just perfect for families.

The scenic drive to this location takes you almost all the way to the beach itself. The convenient parking means you can travel as heavily loaded as you want.

Hapuna Beach

Another beach perfect for the budding naturalists in your family is Honaunau Beach.

Carlsmith Beach

Also known as Four Mile, this beach makes up for its lack of sand by offering a gorgeous lawn where you can have a family picnic and beach day all in one.

James Keʻaloha Beach 

It has grassy areas for a picnic, the shore for a traditional beach day, and facilities to keep you in touch with civilization.

Much like at the James Kealoha Beach, Onekahakaha offers a broad range of features for a good family day out.

The many natural features are complemented by an array of amenities, giving the perfect balance of natural beauty and human comforts.

Samuel M. Spencer Beach

If that’s too much of a mouthful for you or the kids, the bay on which this beach sits is often called A-Bay. A reef offers plenty of shelter to the waters, so the whole family can enjoy a swim without worrying about high surf.

Anaeho’omalu Beach

The greatest value in Kikaua Point Beach for families is the fact that it is technically a lagoon.
