A county park named Kēōkea is on the north coast of the Hawaiʻi Island. In the Hawaiian Language kē ō kea means “the sound of whitecaps”, or “the white sand”. Wikipedia… Well good luck finding sand of any color. It is a nice and scenic place however. The following photos are of Keokea and Kapanaia in North Kohala, The “Big Island”.
Kapanaia is off the beaten path, not really a Beach Park, really more of a place locals will go to and sometimes camp. The road is rough, real rough after the rain. It’s nice if you can find it.
