The following are just a few of the many activities to add to your itinerary when you’re planning to stay in Kamuela this Memorial Day.
Make it a Beach-Focused Holiday
A Memorial Day weekend spent in Kamuela wouldn’t be complete without some well-deserved time soaking up the sun from a spot on a scenic shoreline. Fortunately for travelers, there are plenty of such places within reach when they head in this direction. Some of the best beaches the Kohala coast and North Kona call their own are found within 20-minutes of Kamuela. A quick drive in that direction will have those looking forward to working on a holiday tan basking in the sunlight and watching gentle waves lap the shoreline in practically no time. Those who are looking to pair their beach hopping experience with time at iconic area parks are in luck as well this Memorial Day. Destinations like Kapa’a Beach Park and Lapakahi State Historical Park are all within driving distance of Kamuela. Some of the more popular beach stops to be sure to check out during your holiday away also include Mauna Kea Beach, Waialea Beach, and Hapuna Beach too.
Give Horseback Riding a Try
Weather in and around Kamuela over Memorial Day is typically mild, giving travelers headed in this direction every reason to get out and explore their surroundings in a unique style. If you’re up for an adventure that gives you a great view of fantastic area terrain, booking a horseback riding excursion is a must while you’re here. South Kohala is brimming over with lush rolling hills and trails that are often best explored on horseback. There’s no need to be an expert rider to make the most of the fun. Places like the Anna Ranch Heritage Center and Parker Ranch offer lessons and instructions prior to hitting the trails alongside a friendly and knowledgeable guide.
Book a Manta Ray Night Snorkel Tour
Part of the beauty of a Memorial Day weekend getaway to Kamuela is that the fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down each day. This is especially true for travelers who take the time to book an exciting Manta Ray night snorkel tour while they’re here! Hosted by Kona Sunrise Charters, a tour of this type promises to be one-of-a-kind. Averaging $139 per person, a Manta Ray night snorkel experience generally lasts an hour and a half and happens just a short way off the Big Island’s west coast. Guests will hop on board a snorkel vessel that comes complete with vibrant diving lights able to shine through the waters in the evening hours. The lights allow snorkelers to revel in the sight of Manta Ray below feasting on plankton and putting on an altogether mesmerizing display! A tour of this type is suitable for guests aged seven and up and is generally a good fit for those with some previous snorkeling experience in order to make the most of the fun.
Book a Helicopter Tour
While a visit to Kamuela over Memorial Day comes with ample options for on-the-ground fun, travelers who are looking for a new perspective on their holiday surroundings will find it when they book a helicopter tour of the Big Island during a visit! Blue Hawaiian Helicopters offers a tour known as the Big Island Spectacular & Volcano Helicopter Tour that lasts 2-hours total and provides guests with unsurpassed views from above.
