Today, as in centuries past, Kauna‘oa embraces sun-worshippers and swimmers, sandcastle-builders, surfers, sailors, and those who prefer their strolling hand-in-hand under moonlight. Coupled with H?puna Beach to the south, these picture-perfect Hawaii beaches are often rated among the best in the country by The Travel Channel, “Dr. Beach,” Condé Nast Traveler and many others.
