Lying in the shadow of the giant temple that Kamehameha built before uniting all the Hawaiian Islands is a white-sand beach. Spencer is protected from the prevailing winds and strong waves and swimmers, snorkelers and divers will find great conditions. This is the perfect place for a family picnic as there is calm water, shade and good facilities, including restrooms, picnic tables, showers, basketball and volleyball courts, a roofed pavilion, parking lots, camping area and lifeguard tower. Parents can relax in the shade and watch their children play near the water. Those wishing to explore the beach should use caution when walking in rocky areas, as sea urchins are present.
