According to ancient mythology, Hawaiian mountain peaks are sacred and off-limits to all but a few tribal chiefs. Hawaii's Mauna Kea, the Big Island's tallest peak, was the most sacred of all.
Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano, lends its name to a little slice of heaven on the Kohala Coast. Surrounded by private homes and the Mauna Kea Beach Resort, it's easily understood why the Mauna Kea Beach is rarely visited by island guests. The inside scoop suggests visitors drive up to the main gate of the Mauna Kea Beach Resort and let the attendant know you’d like to visit the beach. Your free parking permit and map to the beach is the beginning of a beautiful day. Considered as one of Hawaii's best beaches, Mauna Kea's small bay, gentle seas and white sandy beach creates a string of adjectives that include awesome, beautiful and the next best thing to paradise.
