Tips for Families

Getting to Hawaii is no small feat for many -- and we were coming from the Northeast. We were greeted after 17 hours of travel in the wee hours of the night with chilled face towels, fancy drinks, and leis. Tell the kids that they have this to look forward to and the marathon travel may not seem quite so challenging! A more extensive review of our trip (including a helicopter ride, zip line tour, and surfing) is captured through the three blog posts I wrote during our stay, below. My husband and children also immensely enjoyed swimming with manta rays! http://www.olliebop.com/2012/04/aloha-from-hawaii/ http://www.olliebop.com/2012/04/surfing-hawaii-and-the-inside-of-our-fridge/ http://www.olliebop.com/2012/05/last-hurrah-hawaiian-adventures/

Tips for Families

While expensive, the mood is friendly and soft-spoken, not braggy or bombastic. I hope the staff and guests always keep it that way -- quiet confidence.

Kua Bay Beach Park

Queen Ka'ahumanu Hwy (between mile markers 88 and 89), Kailua-Kona/Keauhou, Hawaii

| Map

This is a great beach, perfect white sand and clear blue water. In regards to the girl below who wrote that she was told that this was a "secret" beach; while this is now a state beach park, as recently as 2005 (?) this was all unimproved coast-line with only 4WD access (extreme 4wd). There were no signs or anything on the highway. Also, since you can't see the sand, etc. from the highway, people wouldn't immediately know that a beach was there. There used to be lots of camping, and big parties down there since you couldn't see it from the road, and there was limited access for authorities to check up on you. In the winter, with the right swell, there is a great surf break off the northern point. I just got ...

Kahalu'u Beach Park

If you like swimming with tropical fish and sea turtles, go here. This is not a beach for sunbathing or taking your kids to go for a swim. I made sure to stop by the morning of our departure and sure enough, I saw three turtles in the water and one laying out on the beach. Perfect way to end my vacation! Besides the turtles, there are tons of colorful fish swimming around and the water is usually calm. The day we left, it was super windy the night before and the waves were stronger, but still manageable. Restroom is clean and they have a shave ice truck and some food on site. The beach itself is small, but that's not why you go to this beach. Wear reef shoes since there are tons of rocks in shallow water - r...

What a gem!  So far it seems like not everyone knows about this little beach because it wasn't crazy busy the few times we went.  The sand is so soft!  The water was warm and inviting.  Clear teal blue water and the waves weren't too much to handle.  Perfect for families.  There is no shade so bring an umbrella, some snacks and enjoy.  There is no sign...

I did a private lesson with Dylan! I had a great time!! As a kid living on Oahu I did a lot of boogey boarding but never worked up the nerve to try surfing. Years later, in my 30's, I decided to give it a try on a recent trip to the big island. The folks here followed up immediately with my web form submission. When I scheduled my class they communicated clearly what to expect and what to bring as well as directions to their location. When I arrived, I had the opportunity to practice and get some safety tips. Dylan arrived and I followed him to a little known surf  spot in a local state park. We had the whole beach to ourselves! A word of warning though, many of the beaches on the big island are rocky so you...

Kahalu'u Beach Park

This was a great first place to snorkel on Hawaii.  For those complaining about the rocks, there is a great sandy walkway into/out of the water...no rock slipping and cutting of the legs necessary!  The water was a little rougher today, so not as many fish there today as there would be on nice days, but it was still a ton of fun for my daughter (6 years old) and I.  We snorkeled all around the rocks/reef.  We were even greeted by 4 awesome sea turtles!  Overall, it's a definite snorkel spot for families or leisurely snorkeler's.  Those more serious snorkeler's may want to head down the road.   Oh, and it is definitely worth it to get there early.  We got there at 8:30 to make sure to see the turtles--one swa...

We went to a number of snorkeling beaches on the Big Island and this was by far the best. The water was calm, it was easy to stand in the water and get in and out with the sand gradually sloping out into the bay, and there were tons of different fish to look at. In contrast, none of the other beaches had even 1/10th of the fish...

The paved road to this beach, the parking lot, and the permanent showers and restrooms are relatively recent "improvements".  Up until a couple of years ago, we'd have to hike down to this beach and we'd get to enjoy it without a pile of people to the left, right and all around you.  The "impro...
