Magic Sands - Big Island Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This superhot beach is a fast, hard-hitting shore break; it takes skill to handle the punishment these waves dish out. From 2 to 4 feet and above, it starts to peel off better, and on big days of 6 feet plus, the left-hand reef break will pump. Bodyboarding grinders barrel into the beach shore break. Fun waves, lifeguards, and left point when the swell is over 6 to 8 feet.

Clear blue waves break hard and fast at this prime performance bodyboarding spot. Barbecues, picnic tables, restrooms, and showers. Best in winter with a west swell, the spot is also known as “Disappearing Sands" because the sand can disappear in the strong currents; it returns in summer. Best Boards: Short and gun."
