The Big Island of Hawai'i has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Many of the beaches have black sand, a result of volcanic eruptions in years past. The resort's beach features white sand and is located beside the South Tower. The beach offers a protected swimming lagoon. There are no life guards on duty, swimming is at your own risk. Beach gear can be rented on-site.

Please note the pool at the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii is anticipated to be closed and under renovation from August 7-September 10, 2016. Between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily noise is to be expected from the renovation and there will be some reduced Food & Beverage offerings; our beach facility and services will be fully operational.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

You've got to see the Green Sand Beach. Accessible only with a 4 by 4! Don't let the path discourage you. The view is worth it. You can do it! (Good luck ! :I ). Ah, and the helicopter trip to see the volcano/island is a MUST!
