About Lymans Surf Spot on Holualoa Bay on Kona & West Island, Hawaii

Lyman’s is a popular surf spot especially in the winter months when the swells are stronger. When surf’s up (typically October through April), the local surfers will be riding the left-hand wave that breaks around Kamoa Point. Even if you aren’t a surfer, it’s fun to sit on the rocks and watch them. An interesting note about this spot is that King Kamehameha The First learned to surf on this point break in Holualoa Bay.

When the seas are calm and the surfers are not present it’s possible to snorkel here. Otherwise there is no park and no sandy beach at Lymans so few folks stop when there’s no surfing going on.

You can find Lymans on the shore of Holualoa Bay between homes at 77-6325 and 77-6335 Alii Drive. At that location you’ll find a parking lot and showers on the mauka side of the street and a lava rock shoreline on the makai side of the street.

For a similar but quieter experience nearby, walk south on Alii Drive for about 1000 feet to the next Shoreline Access sign which leads to a place of solitude on Kamoa Point.
