Kua Bay is a popular beach park a little way north of Kailua Kona. There’s no car park, so vehicles line the road to the beach. The beach itself is a small, but lovely curve of sand. It’s very popular because of this and its proximity to Kailua Kona. Most people head for the main beach, which tends to get crowded, but one doesn’t have to walk far to find more room.

There’s a lifeguard hut at Kua Bay. The lifeguards get to deal with the result of activities such as those in the photos. The bay can also be somewhat dangerous when there are onshore swells. Body surfers can get slammed against the sandy bottom, causing significant injury and requiring the help of those lifeguards to get out.

    It looks a great spot, Graham. So many cars! We ferried across to the Ilha the other day and there were lots of paddleboarders playing on the waves. One of them must have come unstuck because, as we were waiting for the ferry home, an ambulance boat arrived to wheelchair off a young man with his head all bandages and an oxygen mask. You need to know what you’re doing out there!

          No, that’s not great. Mind you, the passing of a tropical storm last week sent waves washing over a two story building on the coast here, which is also not good.
