We like to stop here on our last day on our way to the airport for grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, beer, and a great view of the harbor. There is access nearby to a beach with an old fishing pond where turtles usually bathe on the sand. It is s great place to walk around, but do not swim here. The locals say this is a place where dumping occurs so it is easy to catch an infection.

Do you like kayaking? Try this place. Very friendly local company. You can easily book online. Best way to book a kayak to Captain Cook's Monument. You may even get lucky and kayak past a pod of dolphins since they breed in the bay there.

Just past downtown Kona, there is a hidden public park with tennis, swimming, walking trail, and more. There is a group of leisure tennis players there from 6am to 8am. Bring your tennis racquet and tell them Kevin and Cindy sent you. Great people! Looking toward the beach to the right of the tennis courts, there is public access to the beach. Walk straight out and walk toward the left on the sea wall to see beautiful homes overlooking the beach. This will lead you to a calm swimming beach. Definitely a hidden jewel!

If you like to hike, don't miss this and don't forget your bathing suit. It is best to do this early before the winds pick up. Pack a lunch and take plenty of water. If you want to see this stunning beach, but are not up for the hike, you can pay the locals about $15 for a round trip ride on the back of their truck.

This secret spot is on the other side of the island near the volcanos. Locals love Wednesday nights for this night farmer's market. The whole town shuts down and the music and dancing begins. Definitely one of our favorites! This was threatened by the lava so check to make sure it is still open before taking the long drive. This is great for adults and children!
