Ke`ei, Kealakekua Bay - Big Island Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At this huge, mile-wide bay deep below the mountain, the best waves are at the southern end, Ke`ei—mostly a left-hand reef break, with several peaks that join up on a good day into one 400-yard ride that really pumps and jacks up double overhead to produce a steep, fast-barreling wave. But there are also hair-raising rights into a deep pit, and a hard paddle back out for those who venture.

Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park in the middle is a left point break (called Manini Point) that peels off in a big southwest or west swell. Best Boards: Short- and longboard. This chapter also includes a brief description of Hookena, Milolii Beach Park, Kaalualu, Honuapo Bay, Punaluu, Halape, Keauhou Point, Apua Point, Pokoiki First Bay, Second Bay, Third Bay, Kaimu, Richardsons Bay, Kealoha, Bay Front, Honolii, Waipi`o, and Waimanu Bay."
