Just west of Keokea Beach Park lies a small sand and pebble beach. Kapanaia. Kapanaia is off the beaten path and the dirt road leading to it can often become mud in deep ruts, Watch the weather and preferably be in a 4 wheel drive should you decide to visit.
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.
