Located just south of Kona, Kahalu’u Beach Park is a favorite beach in the area for its excellent snorkeling. This black sand beach is situated in a bay with a reef system that protects it from larger surf. Beneath the surface of the clear waters, snorkelers will find sea turtles, octopus, sea urchins, eels, and tropical fish such as Parrotfish, Butterflyfish, Moorish Idol, Unicornfish, and Hawaiian Spotted Boxfish, among others. Toward the center of the bay past the lifeguard tower is also a popular site for surf lessons offered by outfitters such as Kona Town Surf Adventures and Kahalu’u Bay Surf and Sea. Smaller waves break over the reef near the center of the bay that are good for beginners, while larger waves on the outside are suitable for more advanced surfers. King Kam Beach (Kamakahonu Beach) is situated right in the heart of Kona and is a great option for a nearby snorkel spot when you want to spend an hour or two exploring the underwater world before moving on to a different adventure for the day.
With its dry weather and sunny skies, Kona is also a top golf destination. Our 2-bedroom Kona rentals are situated near courses such as Kona Country Club, where you’ll encounter a championship course that overlooks the ocean. Makana Golf Club is another favorite public course near Kona, set in a spectacular inland setting at over 2,000 feet of elevation. This gives it a characteristic that is rare in Hawaii – it has bentgrass greens. Cooler air and sweeping vistas that extend down to the Kona coastline and up to the 14,000-foot Mauna Kea Volcano give this course an exotic feel with vistas that won’t be quickly forgotten.
Best Family Activities in Kona
The laid-back lifestyle of Kona and plentiful activity options makes it a great choice for families who are looking to create cherished memories together while vacationing in paradise. Learning more about the island’s wildlife, playing along postcard-perfect beaches, gasping in wonder at the beauty of a waterfall, and hiking along trails that lead through exotic terrain are just a few of the ways life with kids can be enjoyed on the Big Island!
Bringing the kids to the Big Island presents a great opportunity to explore the vast array of sea life that call this area home. In addition to visiting the best Kona beaches for snorkeling, consider adding some of these other family-friendly activities to your itinerary! The Kanaloa Octopus Farm and the Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm are both located in Kona and provide exciting opportunities for the kids to see these creatures up close and enjoy a hands-on experience with the touch tanks. There are also a variety of boat excursions that get you out on the water surrounding the island on whale watching and dolphin watching tours.
From toddlers to young at heart, a Hawaiian luau is something that is sure to entertain the whole crew. While they may seem cliché and they certainly are geared toward tourists, there is no doubt that many of the elements of a luau are still important parts of the Hawaiian culture today. Attending a luau gives you a glimpse into the song, dance, and language that are an integral part of the Hawaiian culture, and many also include chances to engage in traditional hands-on games and crafts, which the kids will love. And of course, food is a main component of the luau, with a wide range of traditional foods creating a delicious feast. Voyagers of the Pacific and Legends of Hawaii Luau are two highly regarded luaus that are both within easy reach from Kona.
You can’t round out your Big Island vacation without treating the whole family to shave ice at least once, and if you try it early enough during your stay, you’re sure to go back time and time again! Different from snow cones in that shave ice is made with much thinner, fluffier shavings of ice, this sweet treat is something the whole family will love. Other than a wide myriad of syrup flavors, many establishments also offer shave ice made with fresh local ingredients and toppings such as mango, guava, pineapple, passion fruit (lilikoi), and coconut, among others. For a real indulgence, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the bottom and a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk to the top! One Aloha Shave Ice is a Kona favorite for residents and visitors alike.
Best Day Trips from Kona
Road trips are much easier on the Big Island, where distances can be tackled easily. Set aside time to explore some of the Big Island’s top sites that are easy day trips from Kona, such as exploring the towering summit of Mauna Kea! Thanks to its elevation and lack of light pollution, the summit of Mauna Kea is home to a number of scientific observatories housing massive telescopes. While these aren’t open to the public, even a trip to the Visitor Information Center that sits below the mountain’s peak offers a spectacular vantage point for stargazing. The drive takes about 90 minutes from Kona.
From the mountains to the sea, it seems that there are breathtaking views everywhere you look on the Big Island! While it’s no secret that Hawaii is home to stunning beaches, vacationing on the Big Island offers the chance to view some of the world’s most unique slices of shoreline. Consider heading to the southern tip of the island to explore Punalu’u Beach with its striking black sand, or Papakōlea Beach with its otherworldly green sand.
