Most beaches are steep, narrow and strewn with grey to black sand, so Hapuna, the island’s largest and whitest makes a nice contrast. Ideal for bodysurf or bodyboarding in the hollow dumpers plus a nearby reef peak that is a heavy, localised spot with square barrels in a W swell.

The beach is often mushy but has a few epic swells every year. A bit further south is a a clutch of shallow, hollow reefbreaks named after mile markers like 69's.
