What can I get for $500k on the Big Island??

Michael from Maple Grove, Minnesota asks:

We travel to Hapuna almost every year. Our priority is always a good swimming beach. Can we get something decent for $500k that would be walking distance to a good swimming beach? Also, Hilo side is obviously significantly less expensive than Kona, but are there any hidden spots there that are close to good swimming beaches that you can get for less than on the Kona side? Thank you.
