Beach 69 ( Waialea Beach) is one of the more popular white sand beaches on the Big Island. Especially so during the summer months, because of the sun, shade and good snorkeling. Waialea beach is also called “69 beach” because of the number 69 utility pole close to the parking area of this beach.
Waialea beach fronts a small residential area. The white sand of Waialea beach erodes during the winter due to strong surf, but is pristine during the summer. There is plenty of tree cover providing shade and privacy.
There is no life guard on duty, but there are showers and restrooms.
